Cyanocosm investigates the movement of the human body through nature, and how the body interacts with and manipulates the spaces it inhabits. This installation of cyanotype prints encourages the viewer to move through and interact with the work in the gallery space. This action may mimic the way a viewer would interact with nature in an outdoor space. Using an installation of malleable forms, I encourage the viewer to move around the work, manipulate the work, and become a part of the work, which gives power to the viewer in the artist-viewer relationship. This work originates through outdoor cyanotype printing methods, often in a communal setting. Participants reconnect with natural spaces, through the act of walking and cyanotype printing, which is a pre-digital photographic process that historically utilizes natural light in outdoor spaces.
