A Peculiar Place (Տարօրինակ մի տեղ)

a home hiding, seeping
through sounds and lights

ձայների, լույսերի մեջ թաքնված
ծորացող ու փախչող

A Peculiar Place (Տարօրինակ մի տեղ) is a short experimental work by Anna Grigorian, shot entirely on cellphone. The foley sounds and traveling lights are trying to discern the immediate surroundings, and seemingly habitual surfaces. The work is created in Montreal, almost 9 thousand kilometers away from home.
