Borrowed Text
Lightbox installation in a hallway
12 x 15 x 8 inches

Black: "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others."
White: "Women have the same rights against their men as men have against them; but men have a degree above them (in responsibility and authority)." (2:228)

The lightbox, depicting text on either side, was installed in a corridor. The texts were borrowed from 'Surah Baqarah' from the Holy Quran and 'Animal Farm' by Orwell respectively. It places two statements together from vastly different sources to point out the similarities between the ways both have been phrased.
