Corruption by Arya Tabandehpoor

There are photographs in this series that I have manipulated with “data processing software,” and that is where their general similarity stems from. When I go on a journey or leave my everyday living space, the awareness of my surroundings decreases, and thus the subject-matters of my photographs change accordingly. Sometimes I almost see these photos as postcards.
With this machine, which is similar to a kaleidoscope, the pictures are repeated and rotated vertically and horizontally, thus their real and virtual images are switched: similar to what happens in my mind.


(/ˈnuqt'a/) is a colloquial term used in Farsi meaning dot.
A Project by NULLSIGHT, Media arts collective from Tehran, collection of conceptual, practical, and technology-oriented objects, contributing to the promotion of the media-art business.
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.
