PhotoSynthesis: Art Made from Light

The winter solstice has come and gone, and daylight saving weekend is just a few days away. Given that, it seems appropriate to revisit Cobalt’s annual New Year’s card — sent out to our roster of active clients — which came with a sheafof photosensitive paper capable of making photographic-type prints using sunlight and water.

We’re pleased to showcase some of the resultant art from our staff and clients who felt the spark of creativity during the mercifully lengthening winter days.



Cobalt-60 is the name of our blog, an online digest dedicated to the art and science of communications. (It’s also an isotope of the element cobalt.)
