SONNENLICHT AUFZEICHNUNGEN

A large lens focuses an image of the sun on the back of the apparatus. The intense heat of the sunlight burns this image into the paper. These recordings were produced every half an hour over the course of one day. Usually viewing a photograph opens a space behind the image, while its material body, the photo paper, disappears out of sight. This is different here: The burned paper is perceived in its own physical appearance and not as just refering to something else. Also the sunlight is represented as a physical part of the world it reproduces, with further more qualities besides it´s brightness - such as heat.
