Watercolour, 2017–2018

Watercolour was an international (e)mail art project in which five pieces of white A4 paper were placed on five coloured seas around the world: the Red Sea, White Sea, Black Sea, Yellow Sea & Green(land) Sea, by participating artists and scientists to create five conceptual ‘watercolours’.

Contributions were received from Dr. Ramona Marasco (King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, Professor Alexander Tzetlin, Dr. Nickolay Usov & Konstanin Biyagiv (White Sea Biological Station), The Russian Federation, Professor Ali Muzaffer Feyzioglu (Karadeniz Technical University) Turkey, Nick Hobbs (an artist based in Istanbul, Yujin Ju (an artsit based in Seoul, The Republic of Korea, and Professor Lena Håkansson (University Centre Svalbard (UNIS) Norway. The substrates were chemically analysed using X-Ray Flouresence Spectrometry by participatory scientist Robert Ashurst (University of Sheffield) and through Opitcal Microscopy by Professor Clare Woulds & Dr. Karen Bacon (University of Leeds).
