I made an experimental work that collects cyanotypes of different nature. In particular, I experimented using all kinds of liquids: of different density, origin and provenance, with the aim of creating new, different and unexpected forms.
I started making some cyanotypes using fruits and vegetables which I found in my house’s garden in Italy. On the paper, I crushed cherry tomatoes, grape, clementine, spread honey, poured water, and then I exposed the paper sheets to the sun for few minutes. I had fun doing it. Watching abstract shapes being created on the paper is what fascinated me most, which is why I approached this experimental work with curiosity.
My personal goal was to create unexpected shapes by playing with liquids and elements belonging to the natural world. I also wanted to confuse the observer about the origin and typology of the elements in the works I realized. I hope to have succeeded in that.
