Today, Sunday, is the midpoint of the residency. Looking out the window reminds me so much of the Canada weather when we lived and taught on the Burlington campus in Toronto – bleak, biting winds with snow on the ground. The weather here changes so quickly – tomorrow is meant to be clear and I may have a chance to make a few more cyanotype images.
My original intention was to respond to the climate crisis, but it seemed so far from peoples’ minds when I first came here. Only now is it starting to creep into the conversations and events around me.
However… I’m trying not to think about whether my work is good or bad, but just trying things out. I’m using the bits of cyanotype that I think have worked OK and pick up bits and pieces – images, found objects, etc. I’ve started five cards so far – a couple might be close to finished.
