„An de solten see“ is the result of a photo-experiment, not only showing the microstructures of algae, but also the colors, shapes and the light, which appears through enlargement. The images obtained in this way were then transfered onto different fabrics.
With The method of Cyanotypie, the textile itself becomes photointensive and can be exposed. Two salts, dissolved in water, make a photointensive liquid which is applied to the fabric. In the dried state the fabric gets exposed with UV light - with a tracing paper template on top of it. The clear, bright blue gets visible while washing the fabric after exposing it. / 2015
