In industry, UV is used for the germ-free treatment of air and water. The process was copied from the sun, whose rays kill everything. For LEGIT AREA, I climbed into gigantic air ducts of a power station and talked to people who supply us with processed heat and electricity in a systemically relevant way. Only the place is photographically documented, the people are not visible – just like the sun’s rays, which have developed via cyanotype, the germ-free photos. In the installations, air and water are purified by UV light – we have to get close to them. Then they give us what we need: touch and nourishment.
