Thomas Mailaender: Cyanotypes


The cyanotype process (characterised by its cyan-blue hue) was developed as a means for blueprinting. Mailaender utilises this technique to print images taken from his Fun Archive, a personal collection of absurd and anonymous pictures pulled from the Internet. Using this archaic and outmoded processes to reproduce images from digital sources creates a dialogue about their validity and place as artworks. Mailaender's work is renowned for its playful and subversive approach, re-appropriating objects and images in a way that is humorous and unexpected. Working in a wide variety of media, from sculpture through to installations and performance, he has exhibited internationally, including shows at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Roman Road gallery in London, and M+B in LA. He has also published several books including ‘Cathedral Cars' and ‘ExtremeTourism', two favourites in the Ditto shop. Cyanotypes will be on display until November 13th 2014 The book is available from the online store at dittopress.co.uk
