Acknowledgements

I am endlessly grateful for everyone who has supported the porous membrane enclosing this project.

In particular, I wish to thank my friend Derek Miranda, whose obsession with light and sun became the generative force for this book.

a rotoscoped animation of machine-generated cyanotypes
Page one, with an abstract veiny pattern sloping from the top left to the bottom middle Page two, with a similar pattern covering the right half of the image
Page three, the venation structure takes up the left half of the page Page four, the venation covers the right half
Page five, the cyanotype covers the left Page six, another cyanotype

Page nineteen, a machine-generated cyanotype with an abstracted venation pattern that almost mirrors the cyanotype on the right Page twenty, a cyanotype with a seemingly mirrored pattern to the left page

Page twenty-five, a cyanotype layered on top of another cyanotype with the venation structure focused on the bottom-left Page twenty-six, also two cyanotypes on top of each other but the pattern is on the top-right
One cyanotype, almost completely covered in the vein pattern, sits on top of another cyanotype that is mostly speckled blue
Page twenty-nine, a machine-generated cyanotype that looks like a bolt of lightning exploding out of a cloud
Page thirty, another machine-generated cyanotype with a square-ish block of white in the bottom-middle

Page thirty-three, a cyanotype with white text on top that reads: a view of the ground from the ground
Page thirty-four
Page thirty-six, three machine-generated cyanotypes layered on top of each other Page thirty-seven, same as page thirty-six but with two machine-generated images

cw: rapid flashing of images

Perennial uses bindery.js to format this website into an online book. The images are a combination of cyanotypes I made during quarantine, and machine-generated pictures.
