The title Green Matters refers to filamentous green algae, which I used as material for weaving rugs. The basic idea behind the project was to approach green algae and eutrophication of the Baltic sea from a new perspective.

Considering the enormous importance green algae had in the evolution of flora and fauna, its importance as an essential source of oxygen, and prospects of being it for energy and food, I believe it truly deserves our respect. Added to fascination for its beauty, when observed in its underwater environment.

The video forms part of an exhibition consisting of the algae experiments, herbarium, photos, located in a green house at the botanical garden of Turku.

The project was commissioned by Curated Expeditions to the Baltic Sea by Capsula and forms part of TURKU2011-Cultural Capital of Europe event.
