TAP's Database of Public Art Practices in Lebanon
Our Database of Public Art Practices is an on-going research project archiving public art interventions that have taken place in Lebanon from 1980 to present day.
Controller of the Universe
Controller of the Universe is part of an explosion. The center of this piece is the viewer, since in the middle there is a space for observation that operates as the vortex of the angle at which each single suspended tool is located. The piece is titled ironically after Diego Rivera’s mural painting from 1933 and has unfortunately become a sort of statement. The piece has been wrongly interpreted as a masculine and epic work that praises tools and views men as the center of the world.
