Video and sound installation

 

Inspired by Purdah and intersecting with architecture, visitors choose to become participants in a veiled space. Choosing to enter the space reflects the liberty of the choice to veil yet the immersive installation simultaneously creates tension when the line blurs between who is encapsulated in the veil – the participant or the entity behind a set of penetrating eyes played on a video loop persistently gazing at the viewer.
