24 Cyanotype prints

An assemblage of 24 Cyanotype prints. Each site-specific Cyanotype print is made by contact with foam formed at the place where Nagwa Nala, the largest drain in Varanasi, dumps untreated sewage into the Ganges river. Despite being revered as a goddess by millions in India, the Ganges is one of the most polluted river in India.Each print is made at the beginning of every hour for 24 hours, as a performative act.
