“Private Rainbows” (2017) is a screen-recorded slideshow that documents fleeting appearances of small rainbows within the parameters of my apartment. A "phantom finger" swipes and zooms through over 200 images and videos that span six months, from an initial chance encounter to attempts at replicating Newton’s prism experiment. Played on a household monitor in landscape orientation, the vertical edges of the captured iPhone image are left evident, drawing attention to framing, seeing, and the inherent limitations of representation. The image exists not as an objective reality, but as a mediated experience shaped by the technology and the context in which it is viewed.
