Tromsø Dye Project
The project began in the late summer of 2015 as part of a Fulbright Grant and aimed to document the different natural dyes extracted from plants growing on the island of Tromsø in Northern Norway. Tromsø is a city with a population of approximately 70,000 and located within the Arctic circle. All of the dyes collected throughout the research were gathered from a single location of approximately one square kilometer. The location was a landfill behind a hospital and presented a landscape that contained a presence of natural growth adapting to material waste.
