I accompanied three individuals to Flamborough, providing them with an opportunity to experience the sea firsthand, an experience they hadn't had access to before. Equipped with swimming costumes and various photographic equipment including film cameras, polaroid film, macro lens cameras, and a microscope, we embarked on a journey to explore the significance of the sea in the face of climate change. During our excursion, I shared my ongoing fascination and research into the coastal ecosystem, particularly focusing on seaweed and its ecological importance.
While some of us ventured into the water in search of seaweed specimens, others captured moments along the beach using film cameras, intending to develop the images with bladderwrack. Additionally, utilizing the microscope camera, we delved into the intricate details of the marine environment, capturing captivating images of the microscopic world beneath the surface. It was a day filled with exploration, discovery, and meaningful conversations about our connection to the sea and its evolving role in our changing world.

Microscopic footage of Kelp taken directly from Flambrough sea and examined during a trip. The audio is from a recording of a few of us walking over bladder wrack seaweed, we spoke about how it sounded like bubble wrap if you were to not look at it directly, so using audition I distorted the audio to leave the sound up to interpretation, as well as the overlaid sound of water taken with a microphone directly into the sea.
