Golnaz shariatzadeh

A fluid architecture made from hair and skin, swallows peoples’ pain and turns them into ethereal spaces. At its core, sit the grieving mothers weaving a fabric of light that feeds the building. This fabric begins with a strand of hair that runs through the building, becomes the mother’s umbilical cord and strengthens the bodies through the narrow alleys.
Dedicated to those who have lost their lives in the ongoing Iranian revolution.
*Regarding the scene with the eye: Many Iranian women have been shot in one eye during the protests.



 postponed- for experimental animation and music focuses on the image of a nostalgic  fabric, distinct by its persian   visual patterns. It folds and unfolds to create a space  wrapped around creatures whose voluminous bodies feed off of these fabrics. It is a  world in which these bodies survive by being attached to these fabrics of memories,  language    and nostalgia through luminous and glowing transparent pipes- feeding off of  them like monsters.
 These spaces are the cords between the creatures and the nostalgic fabrics. These  creatures maintain their lives through these pipes, turning these visual symbols to mere  surfaces, devoiding them from their meanings and significance.
 The music is the sound of these transparent pipes which I call the engines. The trio  consists of low, ethereal sounds incorporating fragmented microtonal melodies from  persian music. Above the low perpetual wall is the shimmering multiphonics of double  bass and clarinet
