Photosphere
Photosphere contains grains of human-made silica sand that have been treated to emit full spectrum white light when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. This new technology is one of the closest humans have got to replicating the natural light of the Sun to date. In Photosphere, the artificial silica sand was mixed with almost three hundred grains of natural sands collected from different geographic locations from across the world of diverse geologic timescales. Understanding sand as a material that represents not only the basis of our technological and knowledge-based society but also cosmological, geological, biological processes of which we’re intrinsically part.
Photosphere contiene granos de arena de sílice artificiales que han sido tratados para emitir el espectro completo de la luz blanca cuando son expuestos a la radiación ultravioleta. Esta nueva tecnología es una de las más precisas en recrear la luz solar. En Photosphere, la arena de sílice artificial es mezclada con casi trescientos granos individuales de arenas naturales recolectadas de diferentes ubicaciones geográficas, diversas escalas geológicas y momentos históricos. Entendiendo la arena como un material que representa no sólo la base de nuestra sociedad tecnológica sino también de procesos cosmológicos, geológicos, biológicos de los que somos intrínsecamente parte.
