Cyanotype exposed with a 3D printed stencil
Blueprints of an Intangible Interior is a diptych of two pseudo-symmetric cyanotypes. The two prints are the photograms from one negative model of a 3D scan of an interior space. Both prints articulate gradations of Prussian blue and blurry outlines due to the thickness of the 3D printed stencil. The prints are exposed from two angles of the scan – one bottom-up and one top-down. There is no perspective involved in these photograms due to their orthographic nature.
