Food Ecologies Residency

Cove Park, Scotland, 2022

This window of time in rural west-coast Scotland hosted my initial research on seaweed on our dinner plates. Beach front and kitchen based research into the stigmas and apprehensions about seaweed as food in the western world. Textures, flavours and smells, how do we perceive seaweed and what can we do to make it a more appatizing food source. 

Food Ecologies is a pilot residency exchange programme between Scotland and Sweden, and a partnership between Cove Park, IASPIS, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s international Programme for Visual and Applied Arts, and Linnæus University The project was co-founded by IASPIS and British Counsil Architecture Design Fashion, through its Circular Cultures programme.
