Exhibition: "Vermillion in Blue"
The exhibit is displayed on the 2nd floor, west end of the University Libraries, and runs until May 6th.
This selection of ferro-prussiate prints is from a larger touring exhibition titled "Vermillion in Blue". It is comprised of work created by the students and faculty of the University of South Dakota's Art Department, and was funded in part by an Office of Research, Research Excellence Development Grant.
The photographic process used in this exhibition is the ferro-prussiate process invented by Sir John Herschel in 1841. This light sensitive emulsion, involving the mix of ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricynide, can be hand spread beyond a "straight" and traditional application and context. Applying the emulsion to fabric, canvas, wood, concrete and other surfaces, opens the potential of creative invention and extends its application into other mediums within the visual arts.
Ferro-Prussiate is one of the oldest "dialects" in the language of Photography, and in the College of Fine Art, at the University of South Dakota we are currently exploring new things that we are visually able to say with it, as well as, exploring what new visual adventures it may inspire.
