Dealing with the human needs to destroy and fight on 12.10.

The video installation artist Sharon Paz works with common collective images, a mixture of everyday news and historical image data found online. Investigating ideas about the human psychological perception of home, land, nation and culture with her personal history in mind, she explores personal history in relation to the political and historical currents that shape the patterns of group and individual migration. In her most recent video and installation, "IS THIS A GOOD DAY TO START A WAR", human figures are represented as abstract shadows of violent action. Formally alluding to video games and cartoon animation, her video work intersects diverse political realities and cyberspace; flat icons are created inside a flat but layered landscape.
