i was bowled over by the generosity of unibox.co.uk when i enquired about purchasing aluminium profiles to build my cyanotype box. they offered me the materials for free on the agreement that i remember them when i’m famous 😀
well, i’m not there quite yet, but i will get there with the support of family, friends, techs, tutors and the odd random stranger 🙂
at my last assessment it was clear that the construction of the cyanotype box had to match the quality of finish of the other pieces and i now have the chance to exceed that with the profiles, corners and gaskets unibox have given me. externally seamless, structurally sound, and fully dis-/re-assemblable – i couldn’t ask for more.
the finished cyanotypes will be mounted onto acrylic panels and slotted into the inner channels – obvs being large enough to fill the whole face. these test prints on cotton don’t show the inner lights brightly enough but i’m hoping that using more translucent silk will help in that respect.
