My research on queer experiences in Leeds, both urban and seascape, informs this work. Using teaching tools from Leeds Polytechnic University's Art and Design department, I added small cut-outs of dried kelp to the archive, metaphorically "kelping" it with queer perspectives and ecological awareness. This approach arises from the queer impulse to inclusively integrate and subvert archives, combating systemic discrimination and institutional biases.
