[in collaboration with Alix Villanueva]
Project Carrageenan is an interdisciplinary research project investigating the substance Carrageenan, and the seaweed Carrageen from which it has been traditionally derived. The seaweed Carrageen is embedded within a fading oral folk culture that informs us of its traditional use in cooking and as a medicine to cure several ailments.
Project Carrageenan overlays the past, present and imagined future by following the assemblage within which Carrageen and the human co-exist, focusing on the culinary, the industrial, the medicinal, the technological and the economic.
