Snail Tales.

by Alex from Maybe ( ) Together

For the last couple of evenings I have been helping out with Carbon Arts’ project with artist Natalie Jeremijenko & chefs Mihir Desai and Pierre Roelofs.

The project is Cross x Species and you can read all about them & it here.

There are many things to share about this project.

For now.
I’d like to talk about snails.

24 snails were raced.
They were named from Escar-go, to Francois, to Slowpoke, to Gastropod.

Snails, apparently, are high in protein.
They go nice and slow.
Are excellent in our gardens.
And basically (according to Natalie) should be a number one source of meat. The vegan meat.

This got me thinking about:
slinkachu’s snail project
The joy of placing a bet on any animal.
Snail Mail. Oh. Snail Mail.
When I last saw a snail. (when? in this urban jungle. when?)
The huge pink snail in Dr Doolittle.
Sea snails vs land snails.
