Skagaströnd Wish, 20.06.2012 65°82'N 20°30'W" | 82.5" x 82.5" | cyanotype on Okawara paper | "Skagaströnd Wish, 20.06.2012 65°82'N 20°30'W" was made in northern Iceland, depicting the stars' position on the night of the summer solstice. Because it is daylight for 24 hours, this sky otherwise remains hidden. I coated paper with light sensitive emulsion, letting the sun (that which hides the stars) to expose botanicals I collected from the region to depict the night sky map.
