Hand made cyanotype using X-Ray of seven sugar beet seeds on Arches Aquarelle Watercolor paper (300 gsm).
These images were created using equipment designed to determine seed viability. What that means is if you are a farmer and you need to buy a lot of seeds, you want to know what percentage of the seeds have a chance to sprout. (e.g. If 50% of the seeds are viable, then you have to buy at least double what you need to feed your livestock.) When a sample of the seeds are x-rayed, the farmer gets a chance to peek inside to see if there are well-developed germs, and make a technologically informed business choice.
Image size is 16×20. Sheet size is approx 18×23. Set in a white museum-quality unbuffered matt.
