Cyanotype photograms on muslin panels
Approximately 100 in. x 100 in.

These cyanotype photogram panels are produced using one
of the oldest forms of photography, in which an object is placed on
light sensitive paper (or in this case fabric) and exposed to sunlight to produce a physical record or image of a three dimensional object.
The areas exposed to sunlight turn blue, while the shadows cast by the object on the surface of the fabric remain white.

For this project, Love thy neighbor, I collected roots and branches
from fallen trees on the banks of the Monocacy River and arranged them with cut paper to form a map of the interconnected waterways
surrounding the site of the barn which flow to the Chesapeake Bay.
