Safa’s work titled ‘Ok Horn Please’ is inspired by her visit to India. The ‘horn’ as an object becomes meaningful when in relation to the space, the environment and the people. According to Safa people in India are always busy and lost in themselves and noise makes them notice their surroundings. It makes them alert and aware of situations around them. She thinks about what it would be like if nobody honked and there would be no noise and compares that to how impossible it is to even think of the contemporary art world without loud marketing.
Her work is about her belief that ‘a world filled with noise and visual propaganda, is the reason for fading deep attention and cognition.’
