“My initial intention with this image was to make a pattern that read almost like wallpaper. Like a photograph of some sort of military formation that has been cropped, the group of men could go on forever. The significance of black balloons in this is not clear. They represent some sort of negation, an anti celebratory symbol. Like a bunch of little black holes, some sort of loss is being conveyed. The men who have gathered for the purpose of this image are doing so for a somber purpose.” – Ian Davis @ Tamarind Institute
