Site-specific and time-specific ecoprints

work in development 

2018- present

"Eco printing or eco dyeing is a contemporary application of the traditions of natural dyeing. In eco printing or dyeing, plants are enclosed in textiles or paper, bundled by winding over rods or stacked in layers and then steamed or immersed in hot water to extract the pigments and produce a print made with plant dyes."   (Threadbone BLOG)                                         

 

 

"I learned this technique in the summer 2018 at a time when I was getting more and more interested in observing the course of the light through the year. I then started to make books of ecoprints at specific times, as well as at specific locations. This beautiful technique offers the benefits of direct immersion and observation of the natural world around us and it brings a very tactile and physical reminder of the plants."
