Light Installation by Erfan Jamshidi

In electronics, noise is an unwanted disturbance in an electrical signal. Noise is a summation of unwanted or disturbing energy from natural and sometimes man-made sources that distorts electric signals and results in noise pollution. There are variety of incidents in our lives that are similar to the definition and identity of ‘noise,’ bordered upon obsession to me, resulting in the present installation. Such disorders developed as a result of the urban life, have turned into phenomena that are inseparable from our lifestyle and life process.

What defines the identity of distinction is where the self ends and the other begins: the point in which the individual body and the social framework is shaped. NOXTE is based on this idea of liberation of bodies and going beyond boundaries.
The mystical revelation & free exploration of mind & soul while experiencing the trauma of living in the third world country, limitations, boundaries and different kind of social orders, are what NOXTE is trying to observe & share as a different value of art.
The idea of going beyond the boundaries, ignoring the reality & seeking in deeper concepts is the manifest in how the works are selected: the objects that lost their original function for their were merely used decoratively; similar to body itself that is now an old-fashioned entity, falling to pieces in different frameworks.
