Large Scale Alternative Photographic prints

I recently became aware of a noval idea for creating large scale photographic type prints. The product is called Inkodye and is a light-sensitive dye for photograms, shadow prints, painting. It can be used cotton, wood, suede, silk and other natural fibers. I have not used it but I am sure others might be interested in trying it out.

   


On a related issue i came across the work of Christian Marclay the other day. In 2010 he produced a series of large scale cyanotype prints that explored the interplay between two outdated recording methods—the cyanotype and the audio cassette. At nearly 2 and a half metres long these are some of the largest cyanotypes i have seen.
