ARTIST STATEMENT: The kelp forests are recognized as one of the most important and productive ecosystems in the world, providing shelter for fish and other animals and protecting the coastline from potentially destructive storms. In addition, they are a nutrient dense food that is low in fat/calories, high in iodine/calcium/vitamins, and that strengthens your immunity. Kelp are used to not only make the wrappers for sushi rolls, but are also included in products from toothpaste to ice cream. We need to continue to look towards the ocean to help provide healthy food for the world’s population and to protect that ecosystem from destruction and pollution.
