 SASi will invite elders of the Palawa people of Tasmania to hold a workshop in kelp basket making.  Pictured an example of a Palawa water carrier from the early 1900’s in the National Museum Collection  The Seaweed Appreciation Society respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of Australia, its lands and its waters and consults traditional owners in the regions in which our activities take place. SASi recognises that Indigenous Australia existed in a balance with the oceans before colonisation and supports Indigenous governance of unceded lands and waters.    SASi aims to challenge and reposition prevailing anthropocentric conceptions of the ocean as a playground and a profit-making "resource" to be mined, towards a wider recognition of it as a complex intertwined marine habitat.

 Investigating seaweed materiality  with   Jonas Edvard
       
     
 Terrior by Jonas Edvard  The project contains a new material developed from seaweed and paper and is created as a research into local materials. By combining seaweed and recycled paper waste Jonas Edvard and Nikolaj Steenfatt has created a tough and durable material. It is best described as a warm and tactile surface with the softness of cork and the lightness of paper which can be used for products and furniture. The colour of the material is determined by the different species of seaweed – ranging from dark brown to light green. The seaweed is harvested along the beach of Denmark, which stretches over 8000 km and is one of the worlds longest coastlines compared to the land mass area. After being dried the seaweed is ground into powder and cooked into glue, utilizing the viscous and adhesive effect of the Alginate – the natural polymer of the brown algae.

Cyanotypes of British Alagae    Sun Gardens    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekUUuU7whe0     After losing her mother very early in life, Anna Atkins (1799-1871) was raised by her loving father. He gave her a scientific education, which was highly unusual for women and girls in the early 19th century. Fascinated with the plant life around her, Anna became a botanist. She recorded all her findings in detailed illustrations and engravings, until the invention of cyanotype photography in 1842. Anna used this new technology in order to catalogue plant specimens-a true marriage of science and art. In 1843, Anna published the book Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions with handwritten text and cyanotype photographs. It is considered the first book of photographs ever published.

Investigating seaweed materiality

with

Jonas Edvard

 Terrior by Jonas Edvard  The project contains a new material developed from seaweed and paper and is created as a research into local materials. By combining seaweed and recycled paper waste Jonas Edvard and Nikolaj Steenfatt has created a tough and durable material. It is best described as a warm and tactile surface with the softness of cork and the lightness of paper which can be used for products and furniture. The colour of the material is determined by the different species of seaweed – ranging from dark brown to light green. The seaweed is harvested along the beach of Denmark, which stretches over 8000 km and is one of the worlds longest coastlines compared to the land mass area. After being dried the seaweed is ground into powder and cooked into glue, utilizing the viscous and adhesive effect of the Alginate – the natural polymer of the brown algae.
