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, who drew a series of castles with the use of a camera lucida, we have developed the techniques for etching 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.
