Monday, 13 March to Friday, 17 March 2017


10.00 – 18.00 daily


Bramall Music Building, Ground and First Floor Foyer (R12 on campus map)



Kelp Road is the culmination of a collaboration between sound artist Scott Wilson and visual artist Anne Parouty. Enter the heart of the Bramall Music Building and submerge yourself in a bubble of sea sound. Look up and admire a kelp forest, created from a series of suspended cyanotypes.

Drawing inspiration from a marine world that was here long before us, and will remain long after we are gone, this multi-sensory exhibition invites you to engage with the stories of kelp – from its importance to the marine ecosystem, to its role as a marker of climate change and our long-term planetary survival.

Presented by Research & Cultural Collections. Exhibition continues to 05 May 2017.
