Fall Walk, is a collaborative video project, initiated in 2015 right after I moved to the United States as a student. The limitations such as long geographical and time distance, terminating my relationships and reshaping my communication experiences has led me to improvise new ways of reconnection with my home and friends and family.
This project is a series of videos -currently seven videos- documenting the performance of two walkers -including myself- in two different cities (predominantly Boston and Tehran) across the world, attempting to simultaneously navigate the cities following the same directions. Performers are connected through phone calls and have specific destinations to reach. Several rules and conditions lead the Walkers through a processes which aims a virtual physical connection between the bodies.
Videos are presented as two channel installations with sound and accompanied with self designed and drawn maps hanging on the walls.
What about the house?
“What about the house?” is a personal experiment through a history of a family owned property.
Although the house is at the time a settlement for an Afghan immigrant family, it is left behind by the original owners.
Filmmaker investigates the history of the place by going back to father’s archive footage of the house and interviewing her family members.
Do not touch me is a visualization of a personal experience and a response to a physical suffer!
Skin of the body expands into nature and representations of the nature and folds back into itself, Just like how words work in a poem.
