Director Statement

The fundamental importance of the role of light in the visual art is not hidden from anyone. The truth is that most of the time, it is the light and the choice of its angle and intensity that creates the difference and thus creates a new effect or situation. In the face of this installation, which was originally designed installed in this place and is a curtain installed front on the porch of an old house, compared to the observer's place and time of visit, this work shows very different situations. These situations, even from the beginning of the installation, were so distinct and wonderful that it made me to re-read this work through the lens of my camera and my mind, instead of producing a film about the artist and her mentality. Everything we see is not just an object, but a combine of our mind and the time and place in which the process of seeing took place.
so, this movie is an attempt to recording of my viewing. A seeing that is unique to the places and times of my viewing and of course combined with my mentality.
