Seaweed Prints is an exploration of my stamps printed onto natural seaweed. This simply helps give my project some context and provides a creative outcome that compliments the data that is being represented. This development not only gives context to the project in terms of it being linked to the tide but it highlights the detail of the stamps in a way that wouldn’t be achieved on paper.
I’m interested in exploring new ways of showcasing these designs because the stamps are so unique I think it could be nice so print them onto something that isn’t just regular paper. Once the seaweed was dried it became leathery and crispy which created texture for the ink to seep into and create a bubble effect that ‘bleeds’ and mimics water movement.
