Intermediaries: Cyanotype Photograms
Nature has a way of creating its own drawings. These drawings can be found on a micro and macro scale as tiny as snowflakes and mold, but also as expansive as aerial views of land and galaxy clusters far in outer space. My fascination is focused within the transition of the moment that these patterns are created, the exact moment of metamorphosis. I am looking for a connection with the patterns in my images to places in everyday life. Though nature seems to perpetually create random and almost chaotic patterns, they are not as arbitrary as we think. Natural materials are composed of irregular shapes and surfaces that are not included in standard geometry, these shapes fall under the category of fractals. These patterns can be magnified and contracted endlessly.
