Helen works primarily with the cyanotype photographic process, prints made with water and light. Her research focuses on weather processes, this constant and shifting energy. The structured methods and framework for measuring and categorising weather do not offer a true sense of phenomena that is wholly temporary, shapeless and in constant flux. In recent works, autographic line and ink drawings take the place of a photographic negative and are exposed to produce the cyanotype print.
