BOTANICAL SUNPRINTS: A COLLABORATIVE VISUAL MAPPING OF LONDON’S NATIVE FLORA

August 16 – 25, 2018| Satellite Project Space (121 Dundas St, London)

Local artists, Molly Miksa and Gabriella Solti, invite you to both an aesthetic and scientific exploration of the city’s parks and forests, to discover the diversity of the native flora by employing one of the earliest photographic processes, the cyanotype process (also called sunprints or blueprints).

All events and workshops are FREE and suitable for all ages and abilities. Below is a schedule of our program.

The artists are grateful for the support of the City of London, London Arts Council, Museum London and Western University.
