DESCRIPTION

Men of God, Men of Nature is a site-specific work designed by Laleh Mehran especially for the Fuse Box. The daughter of Iranian scientists, Mehran has lived most of her life in the U.S. and has been a professor at the University of Denver since 2007. Her complex relationship with political, scientific, and theological concepts drives her work that often has an interactive component. Her works are intended to be meditative and seductive, inviting viewers to consider their own relationship to the issues she presents.
