Acknowledging vulnerability as intrinsic to the healing process, I make and stack vessels coated with unfixed cyanotype, a light sensitive photographic emulsion. The resulting cairns, made of ceramic forms, are contemplations on the relationships between failure, healing, and vulnerability within the body. The cairns are made to function as counterpoints to archival inkjet prints of unfixed cyanotype paper hung low on the walls. In concert, the cairns and photographic field of blue are a portal into a dialogue between the sacred place and the problematic body.
