INFO

Sun/Screen is a new project by award-winning New York based artist Penelope Umbrico, which continues her exploration of the ever increasing production and consumption of photographic images online. 

Umbrico used an iPhone to re-photograph images of the sun she cropped from thousands of sunset images shared on the web.  The process of capturing images directly from the computer screen creates a moiré pattern - an optical illusion, which is the consequence of the pixel grids, meshes or dot patterns being superimposed.

As the images dissolve into one another, they draw attention to the materiality of the screen and further distances us from the natural sunlight source of the original images.
