Imaginary Species is a series of cyanotypes created from 3D printed "negatives."
The process starts with a Processing sketch, where the structures are generated using different coding algorithms and output as three dimensional, XYZ geometry. This list of numbers is then turned into an STL file for 3D printing using OpenSCAD. Each structure is then printed in a grey tone PLA plastic, laid on top of cyanotype coated paper, and exposed in the sun.
This is an open area of exploration for me as I'm looking into new ways of creating digital structures and their analog outputs.
