Portfolio > Pedal, 2015

The installation Pedal stands for this control over crowds. I used a found image of a gathered crowd listening to a speech by Iran’s Supreme Leader, and erased the image of the leader in the posters held by the people. The blank pictures embody the emptiness of idolatry, extending the dialog to all similar situations in the world. In front of the people, a pedal is automatically pushed repeatedly and each time the sound of applause is heard, demonstrating the theatrical relationship between power and the people.
