Cyanotype, Cotton Fabric,
Grommets, Fishing Line
Daydreams II continues to recall the feelings one has while looking up at the cloud on a summer's day. This installation celebrates the act of finding shapes in the clouds, while relaxing on one's back. A manifestation of antique photography methods, I choose to experiment with the creation of the camera-less image. Cyanotype photograms become traces of the sun, left behind in vaguely figurative cyan images. Blotches of pigment on wall hangings recall to mind the shape and feel of a Rorschach ink-blot, inviting the viewer to again find their own images in the shades of blue. Dimly lit in a warm glow, this installation is a calming experience for all.
