Recycled Tehran

In this piece, I reworked a video from home with the use of printer/scanner. The recycled images gradually lose their quality and become grainy. In this piece, I performed twelve cycles of degeneration. The recycled image resembles noise and becomes an architectonic thing itself. The low-quality image brings our attention to the intensities of material that is unfolded in the video. In the process of recycling the image, a new place is constructed and mapped in which new memories are invested in the course of witnessing the process of rematerialization.

This work was exhibited as a single-channel digital video projection (2016).
