Karin Apollonia Müller:
Citylights

Wayne L. Prim Theater Lobby | Floor 1

Karin Apollonia Müller’s photographs investigate the struggle between the natural world and the built environment. In her series FAROUT, Müller is particularly interested in human settlement patterns. During her research, she stumbled upon images from the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership, a joint project of NASA and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.) The research images became the basis for Müller’s Citylights photographs.  The “lights” in these works reflect human population and distribution across the planet. While Müller did not manipulate the satellite images, she did turn the world upside down—occasionally fusing continents to encourage disorientation.
