A few days ago, I found this type of kelp in a seafood dish. I was struck by this its structure and decided to use it for my form study.
Kelp is a type of seaweed that lives in shallow sea water. It forms “forests” in rich nutrients sea water that could grow from the bottom of the water till the surface. What fascinates me the most about these kelps is how their form serves a particular function. Because they live under water but still need sunlight, kelps have developed air bubbles on their stem to keep them floating close to the surface.
