Against War/2014 / Video projection on bathtub/ Dimension variable

Posted on: January 27th, 2016 by youshabashir.com No Comments

This video installation comprises a bathtub on which a video is projected. To me, the bathtub is the embodiment of context. It is cut into two separate halves, which are then rejoined. This reunion is however not going to restore the bathtub to its former context. The video being projected depicts a bullet-like spherical object, which smashes into the bathtub turning the tub into a bloodbath. This is a recurring pattern leaving me with the question as to how long the context being overwhelmed with blood, is going to linger on.
