PALIMPSEST 

Engaging history, memory and narration, I juxtapose the established recorded history of Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979 with oral history as told by my mother. The recorded performance of me continuously writing and erasing these histories for an hour is projected onto a roll of paper that has traces of the erased words. A pile of eraser shavings at the bottom of the paper serves as a remnant of this repetitive action.
