Works by Azadeh EmadiAzadeh Emadi’s (Iran, New Zealand, Scotland) hypnotic video Moving Lines goes deep into the universe created by ceramic tiles at the Friday Mosque in Yazd, Iran (1119, restored in the fourteenth century). These tiles, proto-pixels, compose the design of the wall, while at the same time each receives and reflects the passing world in their own way. Emadi’s camera draws out the latent movement in the vine-like forms, then she layers them to create a dense microcosm. It is like gazing into a tide pool with lapping water and small plants and creatures.
