Looking at the Sun

Looking at the Sun



100 x 100 cm

Series of four


The very small part consisting of the sun has been cropped and enlarged to a point where the image is on the threshold of recognizable. Attempting to see something so far away, looking up in the sky, as well as in its reproduction -the photograph - the subject becomes what is seen. Here I am interested in the recorded indexical information versus the interpolated information added by the digital process - as it is programmed to attempt to fill in the gaps where information is absent. The image is of the sun simultaneously as it is an image of an ‘afterimage’, which appears because of the processing of it. Also, the experience of the image depends on the distance to it. This makes it impossible to look closely at the image, as what was depicted then dissolves.
