walking to make print

In thinking about walking, and walking every day as part of my art practice, I have been trying to find a way to connect the walking and the maps more directly. A possible way to do this was suggested by my mentor during our last meeting. Here is a test on some yellow fabric I had. It felt rather odd to walk around on fabric with feet covered in plastic wrap and dunked in cyanotype chemistry, but I think I like the result.

final print:

"put your work up on a wall and live with it"

One result of the second really productive meeting with my mentor, Joy Episalla, this morning:

Going to live with these until the sun comes back so that I can expose some more test prints (silk organza ordered online that finally arrived, and some of my mom's fabric).

While newly toned fabric prints are drying, here's another experiment I have been working on:

Since I had some leftover chemistry I coated one of the drawings I've been using as negatives. I am intrigued by the interaction between the disappearing ink lines on the ground and the negative lines created by the cyanotype print on top.
