Midnight on Mars - Justin Hartney

Midnight on Mars

What would midnight on Mars, or any other planet, look like? The landscapes of Joshua Tree National Park feel otherworldly. To exaggerate this feeling, I infused the landscapes with artificial orange light. 

The white tank granite rocks are formed when hot magma is pushed up and cools within the crust of a planet. These formations are estimated to be 135-155 million years old.

Water dissolves the structures and the wind washes away pieces, creating constant changes in the formations.

What would life look like on Mars? I created a distorted shadow to feed the imagination of what might be.

An Earth bound observer is illuminated from the red glow of Mars.

One day we may find ourselves on a planet reminiscent of home. But until then, Joshua Tree is only a car ride away.
