Lineated Luminary is a series of works which exists between photogram and painting; wall sculpture and textile art. It is a series of ten tapestries hand-woven from the fibres of stinging nettles. Sprayed with light- sensitive cyanotype, they are painted by being exposed to the moonlight for one night.

"It took Rasmus Søndergaard Johannsen close to a year to weave the first of what is now a series of 10 tapestries, using the fibres of stinging nettles as his yarn. The nettles themselves were harvested by Søndergaard Johannsen in the shadowy areas of the otherwise green hills of Humboldthain, a Berlin park constructed on top of what was once a mountain of Second World War rubble."
