Saba Alizadeh :: Light and Soil

The war between Iran and Iraq was the longest war in the 20th century. This war was started by Saddam Hussain massive attacks on Iran in 1980 and lasted for eight years during which more than two hundred and twenty thousand Iranian were killed. Apart from the tragic aspects of this historical event; the Iranian government use of the casualties for propaganda is so wide spread that it put aside the real damages. 
Though digital manipulation is an ideal way to produce artworks like light and soil, the artist prefers to use a video projector instead and avoid post production. Alizadeh chose these images and portraits from six thousands documentary images and project them on furniture in the twilight .
