Etiolation I

Navid Nuur

"ETIOLATION I is the first result/residue - what is left after deeply cleasing his mind/studio space from the inside. Most of the content of this fullcolourful art publication will/can not be found or displayed outside this custom created condition."

'Etiolation' is a word describing a plant's response to a different form of stimuli. When a plant grows without sufficient light it loses colour and its stems increase in length much more rapidly than usual due to its natural need for light. This is the phenomenon known as etiolation. Once light shines on the plant, the primary leaves grow to full size and turn green. For me, 'etiolation' symbolizes the way this publication has grown."
