Float is an exhibition of contemporary art and lighting exploring the ideas of transience and objects in space. The exhibited pieces range from cyanotype monoprints, screen-printed linen wall hangings, and table lamps.
Similar motifs travel through the collection and are echoed and informed by the process. The interplay between the controlled nature of screen-printing and the variability of cyanotype is explored with curiosity and playfulness. Observing how motifs and designs lend themselves to each technique and evolve along the way directs the design of the next piece. Cyanotype allows me to use precision whilst inviting the inherent variability of the process to resonate. Using our natural ultraviolet light source, the sun, with the endlessly- changing sky means I’ll never produce identical prints, whilst screen printing and the limiting nature of hand-cut stencils offers a more confined style, and designing within tighter boundaries.
I thoroughly enjoy applying print to functional objects such as lighting. Not only the concept of creating light with light through the cyanotype process, but also adding a dynamic continuation of the design, allowing it a transient spirit - a reminder that nothing is fixed.
