Revision, reality reflected in Shirin Abedinirad’s televisions
A pyramid made of televisions with reflective screens tells us about the natural world and its reality in the new installation of the artist Shirin Abedinirad.
The world of television seems infinite: 24 hours a day, seven days a week, there’s always a spot, a tv series, a reality show or a televised debate to keep you company.
What if the programming is being completely revolutionized and being held by the normal flow of nature? It’s not a kind of dystopic future, but the idea that has inspired the last installation of the artist, Shirin Abedinirad, Revision, realized for the Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2018 in Victoria.
A pyramid of old televisions reflects through its particular screen an image of the natural world that surrounds it, as the Australian ocean’s waves or the long beach or a rainbow after the rain or the reflection of someone who is passing by and is watching himself in the screen of a television for the first time.
It’s just the most underrated tv shows of the century, reality.
