Pouran Borders The Black World
Statement by Pouran Borders: The black boxes reference the dark side of the first stage of civilization. The contrasting vibrant color suggests images of power lines, telephone poles and other wires the light the new stage of our civilization. The question though: Is all this artificial light really the true color of black or darkness? In a way, we are living on a black stage and we may not be fully aware of the end result of the on-going, fast-paced and sophisticated technology, whereby we are actually contributing to a destruction of the earth’s ecology. The installation shows the black shadows of the boxes. The truth may be that there are not any true colors and that we are living in a black world.
