Since 2013, Kramer has been working on a body of work titled Foreshadowing – Endangered & Threatened Plant Species. For this project, she has photographed the shadows of Michigan’s endangered and threatened plant species and, using an alcohol gel process, transfer the shadow images onto paper she makes from invasive plant species such as garlic mustard and phragmites.
Kramer has photographed the shadows of over fifty endangered and threatened plant species in Michigan and experimented with making paper from fourteen invasive plant species. Through her slideshow presentation, she will cover the process of:
1) responsibly collecting non-native, invasive plant species,
2) turning plant biomass into pulp and paper,
3) photographing the shadows of threatened and endangered plant species, and
4) transferring photographic images onto hand-made paper using an alcohol gel transfer.
She will also do a live demonstration of an alcohol gel transfer following the presentation.
This is a virtual presentation held via Zoom – see below for details. This is a free Mackinac Parks: 125 event!
