In the series Tanks Jeppesen transfers the cyanotype technique to the three-dimensional. Further pushing the limitations of what is considered a photograph, Jeppesen suspends cyanotype-printed silk in clear mineral oil inside a glass tank. This delicate material is stretched and anchored by strings to create a floating, intricate, three-dimensional object. These works are alluring and melancholy in their solitude, harkening back to Jeppesen's earlier work with landscape photography. Tanks demonstrates the beginning of Jeppesen's departure from a strictly photographic practice, and his move into three-dimensional and sculptural works.
