Using seaweed as a material to create sea serpents from collected tales, this work was inspired by museum displays of specimens and artefacts. Introducing hints of sea folk- tales, the aim was to blur the line between natural history and anthropology by giving visual substance to myths through creation of objects in a scientific context. This body of work was shown at the Manchester Metropolitan University, the Northumbria University, Newcastle, and at the Bath Fringe Festival.
