Cyanotype is a type of photography where image is developed on paper or other material using iron-containing chemicals with the help of ultraviolet light. The figure, which is placed on the chemical-coated material, will save it’s shape when artificial UV radiation or direct sun-light is exposed to it, leaving the under-area of the figure white and the rest of the material blue.

In my experiments I wanted to create cyanotype on textile. I used plants like bamboo leaves, parsley, arugula, a houseplant Zamioculcas zamiifolia and other small plants found from the city.
