Call for cyanotype submissions

We’re loving the beautiful work sent to us by Cid Freitag, a Learning Technologist in DoIT Academic Technology who works in several visual media and has an avid interest in science, among other topics. Her work is a stunning example of a process called cyanotype - the same process that Go Big Read author Lauren Redniss used to depict the life and work of Marie Curie in Radioactive.

Visual artists: we’re looking for some more cyanotype art pieces to showcase on the Go Big Read blog throughout the year.  If you’d like to share your work with a wider audience, please provide the following information.  We would also welcome submissions of other creative work inspired by or related to Radioactive. 

Submission details:

  Send a photo or digital file of your piece(s) to
  All files should be .jpegs sized approximately 2MB or smaller, 813x1056 or 1632x1056.
  Include artist name, affiliation (department for students, faculty and staff; parallel information for community members); title of work, and year of creation.
  Include any information you’d like us to share about the process used to create the work. 
  Please note that ownership/copyright of all artwork remains with the submitting artist. By submitting your piece to the Go Big Read email address, you grant us permission to share your work on the Go Big Read blog.

Work will be posted on the Go Big Read blog as it is received. Follow the cyanotype tag to follow this special art showcase.
