For over two decades Katrín Þorvaldsdóttir (Thorvaldsdottir) has conducted her own research and experiments to learn how to preserve seaweed as a material, to use in art and design. The connection we all have to the ocean as the womb of the natural world has inspired and driven Katrín all her life. Her principle goal is to ensure the research can be passed on to the coming generations to utilise the kelp even further in the future.
