#8 Remembering the shapes of the replaced stones and returning the last ones.    

#7 Today I found myself struggling with a quick construction to capture the reflecting light on the surface of the lake. Under windy and wavy conditions, instead of catching reflections, the cyanotype formed a chromatographic pattern by tipping the water. (cyanotype on cotton 150x200cm) notes: indigo. a value of concentration.                 [...]

#6 Using the station’s UV Spectrophotometer, UV-120-02, Shimadzu I regard the absorbance spectrum of the cyanotype dye. I compare the absorbance value of the dye unexposed and exposed (30min) with no significant results. I assume the chosen duration was too short to state a difference in the absorption rate of the dye. The absorption spectrum [...]

#5   While making daily light notations and cyanotype-walks outside, the conditions of the residency, the landscape (x) and the station( )x, sneak in my approaches. After the first four days of walking, I found myself with four sets of stones, unintentionally collected(x). Left with 18 dislocated stones, I reviewed the walks and recapitulated each [...]

#4 While walking on the trail to the tree country cairn, I stumbled upon a fence marking the boarder between Norway and Finland.  I did not make it to the three-borders-point after. The next day I asked Oula A. Valkeapää about the fence. He explained that it was established after the Napoleon Wars (1809). Later [...]

#3 notes: a spectrum is not a real condition. It is a behaviour forced upon.                         30.06.16 It feels like it is missing its point.                                                                                 02.07.16   Although struggling with the aesthetics of the spectrum, now and again I consult DIY-resources to create very [...]

#2 Sir John Herschel, known for his achievements in astronomy and chemistry, discovered the chemical reaction of the cyanotype in 1842 (1). Initially Herschel explored the cyanotype process in its ability to measure the ultraviolet part of the spectrum. Later this sensitivity to UV-light was employed for scientific instruments, as for example for the Jordan [...]
