Untitled (sun) is part of a project, Desert Pictures, that engages with landscape representation through unconventional manipulations of imaging media. In the mid-day brightness of Northern Mexico, I blindly pointed the camera directly at the sun causing overexposure of individual pixels. The chromatic aberrations caused by the malfunction of the camera’s sensor reveal the aesthetic possibilities of failure, depicting the sun as an ever-changing column of light, fringed with green and purple radiations. This sensor “bloom” transforms the image of the sun while exposing the medium’s limits of representation. – RN
