Visualization for the blind. Music and poetry for the deaf. The memory encased in olfaction. And these are just normal functions of our perceptive systems. What about the new sensations and sensitivities that may be mediated by (or side effects of) our proximity to technology? All April, immerse yourself in perception: whether exotic, mundane, or hypothetical.
Narcissus by Shirin Abedinirad
Is nature aware of its own beauty? The question came to me after reading the mythological story of Narcissus and spending time in the desert, which to me, represents purity. Humans are able to see the exquisiteness of nature with their own eyes; I wanted to alter the perspective so that the desert could witness its own beauty. This land art installation was exhibited in Iran Central Desert, 2013.
