Cyanotype on paper

 

"Figure 0100110" revolves around human figures that are both archetypal and futuristic in appearance, which Geis designed on the computer in the course of working on his video installations and now realises as a cyanotype - one of the early photographic processes alongside the daguerreotype - on rough handmade paper. Through their ambiguous contexts and gestures, the figures become indecipherable blueprints of subtle mood nuances that attain an intuitive precision precisely in their openness to meaning.
