Description of the Project: This project explores how to print images using  UV sensitive materials. I  came up with the  project proposal  prior to the  outbreak, but it  ended  up being perfect for  self -isolation.  I usually have constant access to a darkroom, but since the everything is closed, making cyanotypes in my bathroom became a new found hobby.

Final Product (e.g., documents, images, video, audio, poster, display, etc.):

Final Reflection on Learning:

I learned  a lot about this particular process that interested me into doing further study. I noticed that UV sensitive materials activate at such a  slow rate that it could be manipulated more easily  which was exciting.




Update on Progress from Weeks 1-3 (include any photos or video if relevant):

this  Experiment was largely unsuccessful because I used the wrong paper.

Update on Progress from Weeks 4-6 (include any photos or video if relevant):

Each image  I made  taught me  more  about the  process. For  example the second image did not receive  enough UV light  before I washed it and the first image  received  too much UV light loosing important  details in the image.

Update on Progress from Weeks 7-9 (include any photos or video if relevant):

These ended up being my best prints from the  project because the great detail I was  able  to capture in the sand of  these images. the first is an Amagansett beach and the  second is the Montauk walking dunes.
