Gloria Fan Duan and her sculptural cyanotypes

Gloria Duan’s large-scale sculptural cyanotypes evoke water, waves, and flow dynamics in light, airy abstract compositions. Mobius Waves, the artist’s solo exhibition incorporating this experimental photographic process, places the viewer inside the wave-form itself by turning the surface of her sewn-fabric cyanotypes into sculptural objects referencing the impossible one-sided mobius strip. These works explore the ephemerality and dynamic energy of transitional subjects like light, shadow, currents, and flows. As poetic abstractions created through the somewhat scientific cyanotype making process, Mobius Waves uses an experimental process to create evocative reminders of the mutability of every moment.

As far as I can tell, this image is not actually part of her exhibition installation, unlike the other images above.
