An assemblage of 1440 Cyanotype prints.

An assemblage of 1440 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. Each print is then cut into 60 pieces representing the minutes of its hour. A new assemblage is formed by rearranging the resulting 1440 minute-pieces randomly.
