Future Relics 91
Inspired by the approach of archaeology, Suzette values plastic in the sea as future relics of today’s utensils. The cyanotype technique was originally used to make actual size contact prints of seaweed. Suzette uses this technique for plastic waste to emphasize the organic shapes, caused by long presence in the sea. Future Relics consists of 500+ unique cyanotype prints.
Suzette Bousema visualizes contemporary environmental topics in collaboration with scientists. Planetary conditions and our place in them are the starting point in her work. She works interdisciplinary with photography, printmaking, glass blowing, weaving, sound, smell, and organic materials such as seaweed.
