Cover Version – Group Show – Studio 73

Cover Version poster
Cover Version blueprints by Zoë Burt for Studio 73 group show

SIDE A:
I am deeply connected to blue and can’t stop making blueprints – a magical process of camera-less photography. Stairway to Heaven is an all time Ledzeppelin classic from 1971 (the year photos of the earth were first photographed and seen from the moon) the song threads a folkloric tale, otherworldly, connecting heaven and earth. This particular print is also inspired by the Lambeth visionary artist William Blake from a 1793 engraving ‘I want I want” from a tiny book called The Gates of Paradise for children. In an anthropocene age of consumersism this image playfully resounds with the restless human spirit

& SIDE B:
Sound and Vision by David Bowie contains the lyrics “Blue Blue Electric Blue”… that’s the colour of my room where I will live. Being a Lambeth resident for many moons, I resonant with this tune.. Electric Avenue – a nearby street and the first to get electric light in London; Davis Bowie’s connections to the Brixton area and my love of the colour blue and making cyanotype prints. Blueprinting or cyanotype is an exciting way to create an image using sunlight and water. Cyanobacteria emerged billions of years ago absorbing water molecules from hydrogen and releasing oxygen as a by product thereby conjuring the first life on earth – ultimate blind blue green algae visionaries in a way. Bowie sings ‘waiting for the gift of sound and vision’ – sometimes it flashes down and connects us and inspiration follows….
