Backup

Backup is an exact copy of information which is saved somewhere else for more safety.

Backup is an exact copy of information which is saved somewhere else for more safety. This copy is used when the original version of the information is damaged. According to medical researches, human beings, in the moribund, bring the pictures of their own pure emotions in front of their eyes, in a sequential and rapid manner. This process is interpreted for me (as an artist) as soul making a backup from body’s memories to keep them safe. The production of photomontage “Death of Maestro” took its inspiration from Edward Munch’s “Death in the Sickroom” (1895). The actors, as the maestro’s pupils, are, based on the original painting’s atmosphere, considered as the counterparts of the original figures in a black and white, minimal and infinite atmosphere. The main format of the artwork is a negative image, which is a white space. To have an inversion to positive format (and also the black space), the audience can use positive filters installed on their cellphones.
