On Wednesday, Dec. 1, 6 p.m., the Elakha Alliance presents “Chasing Kelp: A bull kelp journey across the Pacific Coast.”  The online event is free and open to all.

The speaker is Josie Iselin, who will describe her journey as an artist plunging into the science of kelp and other seaweed of the West Coast.  The images and chapters of her book “The Curious World of Seaweed” will be a jumping off point into her current research and artwork concerning the history of kelp surveys and maps. Her newest project, entitled ‘Chasing Kelp” will be discussed as it is currently evolving. Comparing the underpinnings to storytelling concerning kelp in California versus Oregon, Puget Sound and Alaska are some of her current preoccupations, as visual artist and storyteller. 

Iselin is a fine art photographer, author, and proprietor of the design studio Loving Blind Productions.
