From late fall to early spring, the sun porch at Wave Hill is a winter garden filled with plants that can only live outside in New York during the summer. (Wave Hill is a public garden and cultural center in Bronx, NY).  In preparation for my exhibition in the same space during summer, I created almost 100 cyanotype on paper paintings of the sunlight moving throughout the room and around the plants.  I used the imagery in the cyanotype paintings to create 4 large-scale, kinetic tapestries to activate the sun porch during the summer exhibition.  Here are a few of the works on paper.
