Qingdao Cyanotype Mural

cyan mural

Cyanotype mural in 50 pieces, mounted on canvas.

Printed on Idin Paper. 1.5 x 2 m, 2014

In Qingdao:

New China straddles the old.

Thousands of words in white overlap in blue: Korean, English, Chinese. A reflection of the many languages spoken in this port city.

Cyanotypes are painted in the dark,

qingdao in green
and the results are an alchemy of timing, water, and pure guesswork until sunlight brings out the blues.
