MADE IN CHINA

Made-in-China' project! But why did I choose such an old clichéd phrase as the title of the project? Made-in-China is definitely an undeniable fact due to the principle of supply and demand. Any kind of demand or idea, ranging from the most primitive to the most complex ones, . Playing with the three-color beach ball in a win-lose game is an allegory for a serious game that makes huge profits for certain people while creating huge losses for others. The 'game' suppresses domestic production by changing economic and consumption patterns. In my own life, I have witnessed my family’s textile factory in Yazd go out of business due to a change in economic patterns in Iran. Sanctions suddenly stopped the activity of the factory, and domestic production was replaced by importation on a large scale, mostly from China. The space of an abandoned factory in Yazd therefore has highly symbolic value as a local context for my project, as the colorful ball plays with the colorless, desolate building.
