Description:

"During Japan Tsunami a Strange Creature was Caught on Camera" is a visualization of my research-in-progress, exercising some of the formal strategies and ideas I had been developing, involving spaces-of-no-orientation, oil pipelines connecting the southern and northern regions of Iran, the 1980 failed US hostage rescue operation at the Tabas desert in Iran, and the Iran-US diplomatic relations post 1978 Iranian Revolution. The computer screen is treated as a form of desert, where acts of excavation and inhumation of narratives could render possible.
