SUNBURN explores our overlapping and entwined research interests of clouds, colourful flows and algal bursts, investigating the many ways technologies, plants, cells and colours have developed methods to screen from the sun. The film examines slow and direct forms of sunscreen created on a cellular level through the pink hues of Haematococcus pluvialis algae, whilst examining the growing research into solar geoengineering on a planetary scale, and our many desperate attempts to live under the same sun.

Project in collaboration with Sina Hensel, supported by PACT Zollverein, Atelier für Farbe and Raum RWTH Aachen.
