Regina Agu's minimal and elegant "Sargassum" installation at Project Row Houses quietly consumes the single-room space at 2511 Holman with an 80-foot curtain that wraps around three walls, containing a panoramic photographic print of a grass-lined beach.

The title hints that this isn't just an inventive way to display a landscape: Sargassum is the genus of brown seaweed that Galveston visitors know all too well.

The image is printed on billboard vinyl, a material that's also used to advertise seaside attractions. It depicts four experimental sand dunes Texas A&M environmental scientists built on East Beach after the massive seaweed invasion of 2014, studying ways to use the invasive plants as a tool for slowing erosion.
