Songs that serve seaweed
Cuff and necklace
Bronze, kangaroo lace
2018


Songs that serve seaweed features a bronze cuff and necklace imitating St Kilda Bay seaweed entwined with cast analogue magnetic tape. The seaweed is Codium galeatum, a species known for its ability to repair itself if damaged, while the tape contains songs from the album Save the Oceans of the World. The work is a response to Kamahl’s environmental prophecy, in the hope that the sea life of St Kilda has a longer lasting fate than that of the stereo cassette.
