For this call, I printed a circular algal mat I harvested from Tomales Bay, using only blue and golden yellow inks. To my surprise, the resulting map of world, complete with continents and seas emerged, befitting the “shifting cultural stories” call far better than If I had planned it.
I only made this print after becoming totally frustrated at my efforts to make a magazine collage that captures the depth of transformation required in our current cultural moment. I suppose it shouldn’t have been a surprise that I couldn’t extract a new paradigm from the same old capitalist materials. That algae would save the day again. Lesson learned (again!)
