There is an (ongoing) clever project in Alaska. Textile artists from around the world are being asked to send sea creatures (and surfaces) to create a tide pool made entirely of textile objects. The address for this thing is http://tidepoolproject.blogspot.com/.
Of course i HAVE to take part in this as i find the idea brilliant. I plan for several things so far i have made sea peach tonight (more about this beautiful lifeform that reminds me very much of a heart can be found here, or just google it). Its latin name is Halocynthia aurantium and it is pretty variable in shape.
The sea life is quite fascinating, and i am hoping for more time to explore it:-)
