Noiseless Trouble

Series of 28 digital Photographs, Color/ Black and withe, different formats, 2015

The photography series “Noiseless Trouble” sheds light on the complex relationships between history, identity, and memory. It explores how significant historical events in contemporary Iran have influenced my existence, leaving an indelible imprint on my being. In this series, I undertake an act of archiving and reclaiming historical documents. The images are then projected onto my body, emphasizing the vulnerability of individuals’ lives and personal spheres in the face of historical violence. As these images overlap with my body, my existence is touched, and at times even erased, while my identity blends under the influence of this history. By staging this projection of images onto my body, my aim is to provoke deep reflection on how collective experiences can alter our identity and our relationship with the world.
