interesting project and technique from anglo-dutch duo glithero who ..looked back to the Victorian era – a period of great discoveries in science and industry, when botanical and animal species from around the globe were classified and ordered, and at the same time chemistry, biology and physics were transforming life via the Industrial Revolution.

The duo studied the work of scientist Sir John Herschel, who invented in the 1840s the cyanotype or blueprint, a photography print process that produces a cyan-blue print. The process could also produce photograms – images made by placing objects directly onto the surface of a material soaked in light-reacting chemicals and then exposing it to light.
