Electric Sun is a photographic exploration of the night-scapes and the daily lit environment in which the blurred boundary between technosphere and biosphere, creates alternative realities. The project sees the electric source as the fuel for new rituals.  Project is conducted since 2017, between Europe.

The discovering of fire, was a power over darkness. The activities of man were no longer bounded by sunrise and sunset. The invention of electric light and lightbulb stroked other independence for the comfort of human kind. Electric light was the vanguard, means, goal, and emblem of the colonisation of the public sphere. The man-made source is more effective than the Sun, and it changed the cultural connotation of day and night. With it, it expands the day and it creates a new temporal space in the night. The lit darkness is the place for other activities and for other creatures attracted to the Electric Sun.
Electric Sun explores the lit environment and it looks at the different uses of electrical light. The project wants to see electrical light as an omnipresent sources. The omnipresence of light become an element of second nature. With this work, the artists endeavour to turn our perception of reality and fiction upside down. As a resoult, the project developed in elevating the technology into its potential, applying lighting into unused context. The luminous phenomena become something to hunt and to observe like tourists watching the Aurora.  Who gain healing and rejuvenation from coloured irradiation, and others use for growing the idealised fora.
