Out of the Blue is a collaborative art and science project. Creative works and images by Flinders University’s Centre for Marine Bioproducts Development (CMBD) are stitched together into a series of engaging storytelling cyanotype (blue print) quilts designed by artist Niki Sperou. Through art, social awareness of the south-eastern Australian coastline as a hotspot for a huge diversity of marine algae is fostered. South Australian marine algae are abundant - there are three to four times as many species of algae as there are corals on the Great Barrier Reef, including 70 percent that don’t grow elsewhere. The exhibition features the works of Out of the Blue workshop participants, who highlight what can be done with seaweed from environmental science, technology and industry perspectives.

Gallery hours: Mon to Fri 11am-4pm, Sat and Sun 10am-4pm
