The Record of an Anthotype Dress is a solo exhibition by Christine Elfman in the Ramp Gallery, a secure all-access exhibition space located in the SOMArts lobby.
Anthotype is a process that uses the colored extracts and tinctures of flowers and vegetables to sensitize paper or fabric. Thin objects are placed on fabric and exposed to sunlight. Anthotypes are not fixed or stabilized, making them impossible to display continuously except in night albums, for evening viewing.
The Record of an Anthotype Dress is a series of photographs documenting various anthotypes and the process of producing the anthotype from scratch.
