Mechanisms of Disorientation: TOWARDS A FRAGMENTED UNDERSTANDING, 2012

Mechanisms of Disorientation: TOWARDS A FRAGMENTED UNDERSTANDING, 2012


Mechanisms of Disorientation: TOWARDS A FRAGMENTED UNDERSTANDING, is an installation commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and an outcome of a residency program at the Delfina Foundation. Supported by the Iran Heritage Foundation, London, this work reflects on and distorts notions of the museum space in relation to cultural reflexivity by employing a top half of a disco ball that rotates on top of a tall plinth, mirroring light and images projected onto it from four sides. Reflecting on past histories vis-a-vie contemporary objects, this installation draws a parallel between how we observe history in relation to contemporary culture and contemporary state of affairs– our fragmented understanding of our contemporary matters.
