An Open Studio by Setareh Fahtehi

New Media Projects

June 19, 2019

In her open studio at New Media Projects (swim\او) on June 19, 2019, Setareh Fatehi shared parts of her current researches which have been developed out of her online encounters with her family and friends during the past two years.

In explaining her project; she says “I use the practice of storytelling through screenshots and moving screens to highlight the effect of a temporal frame, focus, and opacity on how the image (story) of my body is pictured. I’ve been practicing choreography as the selection of some fragments from the moving images which are unusually meaningful (instead of useful) and desirable (instead of entertaining). These fragments are chosen and arranged to play with the illusion of coherence.
