This piece is constructed out of two black and white video pieces of same length without sound. My recent work is a reflection of my transition (and the impact of it on my consciousness ) between cultures, societies but most of all political systems. These pieces become ‘self portraits’ or ‘visual studies’ of oneself in searching for identity within self-universe and understanding the meaning of Life. These objects (cube, sphere) create a symbolic structure and can be simply identified as Sphere > universe > cycle > life > beginning > end Cube > space > room without entrance or exit > fear I decided not to use sound because the silence is one of the strongest elements of the piece and in the same time adds simplicity which I feel it completes the piece. I want the viewer to hear the silence.
