Taking photography out of the darkroom, Jesse Genet of Lumi has created a way for everyone to produce photographic prints on textiles and natural materials.
Using the ‘Lumityper’ app, users can take a picture using their iPhone and convert it into a negative, then print the negative onto a transparent film.
With the company’s ‘Inkodye’—a water-based dilute-able, mixable dye that develops in the sunlight—users can apply it on a fabric, place the negative on the fabric, leave the fabric out in the sun, and watch the print appear.
For those interested, there’s a Kickstarter project currently going for the production of The Lumi Process. Check it out here…
