Plants have this complex passively dynamic identity. They are often seen as a backdrop or a decorative accent when compared to humanity, but they are a vital force that can dominate, subjugate, and manipulate their environments through fascinating means. While their resiliency is impressive, they are also quite transient. Some flowers only bloom for a day and when autumn arrives, chlorophyll ceases to be produced, exposing hidden colors in a seasonal dance with death. When I learned about the cyanotype process during my undergraduate studies, I appreciated how delicate leaves could be immortalized through the chemical stability of Prussian blue.
