I wanted my artwork to be created by the solar power itself. That’s why I chose to work with anthotypes developing printed images using photo-sensitive material from plants, in my case blended spinach. Every day I coated paper with my spinach ink, wrote something on a glass and placed it over the paper. Then I let my graphics expose to sun for three days. That’s the same amount of time the panel would take to sustain my day.
Because I repeated this process every day, I turned it into my daily journal, focusing mostly on my consumption. I wrote poems, anecdotes, lists, random information I learned on the internet, or just jotted down random thoughts. As I ran out of ideas quite quickly, the project forced me to educate myself, read a lot about energy and think about what I use and consume.
As the artwork will be exposed to the sun, it fade and disappear over time, just as my thoughts will. I decided to cover a few of the entries that are worth remembering so after some time only these ones will remain.
