Seacolours

Following up from Blond & Bieber’s project, I researched ways in which I can use algae pigment in my own work. This led to discovering Seacolours, an initiative which researches the possibilities of using algae pigment on an industrial level. The aim is to find a sustainable alternative to toxic colorants and dyes, saving water and protecting the environment.

Information on how to extract pigment from algae can be found on the website and I intend to use these instructions when experimenting with algae pigment in my own work.
