Japan blues: ao, ai, midori, aizome, ao-ja-shin.
These impressions of blue have come from reflecting on visitors responses to my use of the colour blue during a residency in Japan that focused on making and exhibiting 24 24-hour cyanotype photograms. The exhibition was arranged as an act of remembrance, an anniversary of the ‘triple disaster’ that devastated the region in March 2011. It took place in a snow-covered Morioka, Japan, March 2015.
