These elements are incorporating some of the cyanotype photographs I've been printing. An old photographic process using sunlight exposure which yields these lovely deep blue hues on archival paper.

Whilst I'm enjoying the freedom and unbinding experience of making exhibition pieces, it brings with it an underlying heaviness of thought. The time invested in just simple thought and contemplation in making such things is, I think, underestimated. Sometimes an idea will flow out your brain and you can't make things quick enough. But sometimes (and these are the low points that you just can't help but focus on) the ideas are a little bit stunted - I can see the big overall picture, but as is so often with small object making, it's the tiny details that will make or break the desired result. Self motivation is really hard sometimes.
