What Objects Do I Hold Dear?
Participants created of photograms and cyanotype collages of objects that they personally hold dear. Using the cyanotype process, they explored the technique of UV or sun printing, used to create the famous Prussian blue prints. In addition to their individual collages, the participants also created a 2m x 2m unique collective cyanotype portrait via a collage of carefully curated personal objects and found items, accompanied by handwriting of memories and values attached to these objects. By placing their personal objects within a larger composition and negotiating its space, each participant learns to create a meaningful dialogue with others in relation to him or herself. As part of the showcase, the artworks are also accompanied by the soundscape of the creative making process, recorded during the making of the large collective portrait.
