Solar processing uses the Sun’s UV rays to activate photosensitive inks, creating a unique artwork literally from thin air. Producing a work using invisible rays that have travelled across billions of miles of deep space, is a tremendously satisfying experience. By using natural plants to order the light patterns, the ‘photo-synthesis’ is redirected onto the canvas, which is then washed to fix/end the developing process.
