Safety Box – Sara Madrane

In this installation Sara Madrane used UV light and a thread creating a space thus bringing an illusion of depth. A safety space inside ?? During the crisis of this pandemic around the world, the ultraviolet light has a long history of being a disinfectant including the SARS-CoV-2 virus, making Covid-19 harmless.

The question that arises; how can we position UV light so it may create a safe environment for individuals to work in, study and to continue to shop indoors.

How does it work?

As UV wavelength shortens, the ability of the photons to penetrate into the skin decreases. These shorter-wavelength photons get absorbed in the top skin layer, which minimizes DNA damage to the actively splitting skin cells below. At wavelengths below 225 nanometers the- Far UV-C region UV appears to be safe for skin exposure at doses below the exposure levels defined by the International Committee on non-Ionizing Radiation Protection.

These days, the germicidal benefits of both sunlight and artificial UV light are back in the spotlight as potential weapons against the coronavirus.

Technique: Thread and UV-C lighting to create the illusion of depth.
