“Bored-er” is a digital art piece that highlights the disharmony created when a digital camera is positioned close to a computer screen. This proximity between the camera and screen produces blurry images due to the mismatch between the camera’s zoom function and the screen’s resolution.

The artwork becomes particularly evocative with the display of world flags on the screen. As the camera moves closer, these flags blur, symbolizing the unclear and often disputed nature of geopolitical borders. Through this visual representation, “Bored-er” reflects on the concept of national boundaries – sharply defined in theory but often ambiguous and contentious in reality. It encourages viewers to contemplate the complexities and sometimes arbitrary nature of nationhood and border definition.
