About the artwork

“Polycystina” was printed from a Microscope slide 2.6 × 7.5 cm, originally dating around 1890. We have developed our own technique, so that we can reproduce the original negative plate with the smallest details on a piezography print 10 times larger. Only a small digital cleaning and retouching has been made. The print is realised on the extraordinary Japanese Awagami Bamboo paper and laminated between two mineral glasses of 2 mm & 2 mm antireflex coated. The techniques in combination with this original antique negative plate make this a exceptional artwork.
