DESCRIPTION

Sanaz Mazinani: Threshold features a new site-specific installation by the dynamic San Francisco artist, whose work—primarily photography, video and large-scale installation—explores the conceptual and formal frames of photography, especially as they relate to digital culture and the interplay of perception and representation.

 Threshold is an ambitious project comprising a video set within constructed architectural space. The video abstracts explosive sequences from Hollywood action movies by coupling, mirroring, and multiplying them. Kaleidoscopic Islamic geometries of color, pattern and movement, inspired by the artist’s trips to her birthplace of Iran, are reflected in the mirrored space, offering an array of architectural designs and moving images—prompting a new perspective on the meanings and experience of media.
