Laser Dye 雷射染

啟發自傳統的感光印相法:「氰版顯影」,Laser Dye是一個關於傳統顯影和織品合作的研究項目,利用近紫外線波段的雷射光掃描在預塗在布面上的感光劑並留下永久的具有階度的藍色影像,成品質感結合了手工氰版顯影和數位雷射軌跡的特質。和傳統氰版顯影過程不同的是省略了以負片作為遮罩的方式,因此投影面積不受限於負片面積,且能在脆弱、不規則的立體表面作投影成像。這個計畫在2015入選國際創客獎項Youfab Global Award、並在2018年被日本Youfab收錄為top 50 selected work。

A piece Inspired by the oldest alternative photography process "cyanotype":Laser dye is a study of alternative photography process on textile, by exploiting UV laser scanning and fabric pre-coated with photosensitive ink (cyanotype), it creates permanent cyanotype image on textiles and papers. Due to there's no requirement of negative film for the exposure in this process, it is able to create relatively larger image on slightly uneven surface, the size and the laser movement provide a digital feature within this hand made craftsmenship process. This project has won the selected work title of Youfab Global Award in 2015, and has been selected as the top 50 selected work of Youfab.
