Cyanotypes: New Perspectives showcases the work of five young UTS designers and artists working with the cyanotype process.
13 April - 4 May
Level 2, UTS Library foyer
Cyanotype is one of the earliest photographic processes dating back to the 1840s and was traditionally used to create and reproduce blueprints. The emulsion can be coated onto many surfaces and, when exposed to sunlight, creates a negative print in shades of cyan.
The artists featured in the exhibition challenge the technical origins of the cyanotype through active experimentation with chemical processes, subject matter and materials. The resulting artworks move towards a new aesthetic - one that borrows from digital culture to reinterpret it in analogue.
Featured UTS student artists:
UTS Library curates a series of exhibitions each year that showcase works produced by UTS students and staff. The Library is a point at which the entire University connects and these exhibitions create opportunities for cross-disciplinary encounters, encouraging the exchange of knowledge, ideas and research between academic groups and faculties.
