270

single channel sound + video composition

40:00 minutes

 

“270” is a sound and video performance which refers to the asteroid named after the ancient goddess Anahita. To create this video, Asgary trained herself to memorize and perform her own song and music in reverse for the camera, without any visible instruments or microphone. Once complete, the recorded video is flipped around (so that reverse actions are now in forward motion), and the audio track is also in forward. This process and performance creates a closed loop with herself, a conversation that seems to be of another time and space. 

 

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, 2020.
