I've been digging through old files this week. This collection of images came from a student project I assigned to a class of first year architecture students. This one did not disappoint!
I presented the students with an old typewriter on the first day of class. I had never seen students seem so eager when I instructed them to completely disassemble the machine. Within two hours, eleven students completely disassembled this relic from the past, a de facto time machine. From the thousands of parts, the students generated eleven abstract constructs that would be used to create 5 individual cyanotypes each. The final product, a tabula rasa of 55 figure ground cyanotypes.
