The inspiration behind Turkish artist Burak Arikan’s series, Bored-er, came directly out of his travels abroad: “Like most people who travel, I am sick of the visa controls, security checks, and all that constructed paranoia” surrounding a nation’s borders.

The photographs were created by simply pressing a camera against a computer screen. “With world flags on the computer screen and the camera moved too close to it, we are reminded of the problem—physically distinct but politically blurry borders between nations.” Yet the photographic result is an artistic blur of richly saturated colors and shapes that somehow appear warm and satisfying.
