BEAT THE WHITES WITH A RED WEDGE
This work, made in the genre of generative art, refers to the famous Suprematist poster by El Lissitzky “Beat the Whites with a Red Wedge”, created in 1920 and reflecting the rhetoric of the war.
Throughout history, people have marked the boundaries: nations, territories, states, cities, houses. No less important are personal boundaries, one's own personal zone, the permissible limit of contact. Violation of boundaries is any violent influence on any sphere of a person's life against his desire and will.
In my work the apex of the red triangle is "tightly" glued to the cursor. When the cursor moves around the screen, the aggressive red triangle wedges into other geometric shapes, regardless of the will of the person moving it.
The work is a metaphor for the violent violation of boundaries, which, alas, is repeated again and again in recent history, making this topic no less relevant than in the time of Lissitzky.
