Photography without light

Vik Muniz
Sandcastles is a series of photographs that explore material representation across architectural and nano-scales, by traversing pre and post-photography technologies. In collaboration with visual artist Vik Muniz, we drew a series of castles with the use of a camera lucida and etched these drawings onto a grain of sand with the use of a focused ion beam and scanning electron microscope. The final images are exhibited as large scale prints.
