One unique thing about Lauren Redniss’ work, "Radioactive," is that she is both the writer and artist, designing the typefaces and artwork herself. Images in the book were created through cyanotype, a photographic printing process which typically produces cyan-blue prints. Hosted by the Department of Art, students will learn about the process and create their own cyanotype print with a personal item brought to the workshop. All other materials will be provided. Be aware that any personal item brought will be pressed so anything overly fragile, breakable or valuable is not advised.
Sample items to develop into the print: feather, leaf, coin, bottles, keys, plastic bags, shells, plant life, etc.
Rotations run every 30 minutes starting at 2:00, 2:30, 3:00 and 3:30.
Students can submit their work for evaluation and potential selection for viewing by Lauren Redniss at the Author Meet-and-Greet on 10/14.
