Little Harbor Beach Studies

Presented in a series of 4 works. Little Harbor Beach Studies are a response to Codium fragile, an invasive seaweed species in Buzzard’s Bay and Cape Cod, and how it accumulates on beaches in ropy masses. It has an interesting property that when exposed to sun, it bleaches to almost white. These are squares of seaweed papyrus presented on handmade flax paper, and sewn with linen thread, raw flax threads, and beeswax.
