Samûn emerges from the desert's most sudden storms, reaching over 129°F. When it blows, small cyclones of dust and sand cover the territory and cause suffocation of people and animals.
The work depicts how the landscape suffers the sudden dismissal and the useless effort that can sometimes mean preventing it. Like the figure of the uroboros, it addresses the continuity of the image and establishes a message about time and its cyclical nature, through representations taken in different environments throughout the Spanish territory.

Beyond the information given is the PhD project directed
by Dr. Angels Viladomiu and Dr. Rüdiger Seine
Samûn project produces a study about photographic representation, its continuity and duration. Sandra’s work has several photographic installations in which the works themselves are subjected to the adversities of the environment, books and exhibition projections that explore the cyclical nature of the photographic language.
