Lands Ends -

Lands Ends - Is a set of Drawings that was made into Cyanotype.
The medium of the Cyanotype reflects the subject matter of the drawings: Light houses as they are observed from the deep sea.

The process involved using Cyanide oxide - a substance of a toxic origin and which is exposed to light, then developed in a bath of water.


These light houses are signifier of a place: a destination or a departure point, the point of view of one that is in transit.
A single person or people that escape or are eagerly looking to arrive to a promised land.
A single person or people that might be stopped or rejected at point of destination.

The Victorian light houses once used by a great empire, an empire that ruled the sea and dominated others, are today just points in space. Dots that spread around the globe.
What was strong and mighty, now is an Island - isolated by refusing to accept its own defeat. A small island where Lands Ends.
