HILTON Athens

Eleni Kamma, Plant, 2009, cyanotype

Eleni Kamma in: Voyage to Arcadia, Hilton Athens, 11 February – 26 March 2010.

The cyanotype (blueprint): a photographic printing process that was discovered in 1842 by the English scientist and astronomer Sir John Herschel.
In PLANT, every print is produced by the juxtaposition of an actual plant and the architectural ground plan of a nuclear factory (power plant). The final outcome is an image of a hybrid identity that oscillates between forms of documentation of nature and mass production culture of technical drawing copies.
