Incidents of the Paradoxical Gaze
Conceived as a series of vignettes to be viewed in succession, Incidents of the Paradoxical Gaze comprises of short films, MMS footage, and collages presented on Snapchat. Focusing on the micro and the macro, the personal and collective, the works touch upon ideas of authenticity, censorship and the distribution of culture. The project proposes a re/mapping of 'imagined geographies', and considers afresh the contemporary narratives that exist between the Global South, the Middle East, and beyond through these amalgamated narratives.
