a thing made by combining two different elements and word formed from elements taken from different languages – for example: television (tele) from Greek (vision) from Latin. Origin: early 17th century (as a noun) from Latin (hybrida) ‘offspring of a tame sow and wild boar, child of a freeman and slave, etc.’
I’ve called myself a Hybridist as my professional and personal interests have morphed from journalism to cooking at the Dining Room to now working in image and text. The on-going project, ‘What Did You Eat Today?’ combines my earlier interests, whereas ‘Limbo’ concentrates on my life today.
The tableplan used on my home page comes from:The Modern Cook’ Part 1 by Vincent La Chapelle 1733
All of the seaweed images used on this page and elsewhere come from a book of 130 British seaweeds some of which are dated 1848
