Phytogram Recipe:

- One liter water

- Four tablespoons washing soda

- Two tablespoons vitamin C

- High contrast 7266

Phytograms are the result of a chemical process between plant material and photosensitive emulsion. As plants are soaked in the recipe, they release phenols, which in turn create a developing agent. With Propagate 1, phytograms are used to construct a document authored by the landscape itself. It is a camera-less process, made only with the listed recipe and plant material taken from the environment. 

Thank you to Karel Doing and Laboratory de Cine for providing an open-source of knowledge for phytograms and eco-processing.
