Interactive video Installation
Projector, sound, electronic component

Serendipity is an interactive audiovisual installation that provides an experience of getting access to multilayered content through viewers’ participation. 

The detailed collage animation illustrates tales appropriated from Persian miniatures. By obscuring the viewer’s access to these narratives, the installation contemplates how having multiple perspectives can help us transcend our limited understanding as individuals and remain open to continuous discovery by viewing a collaborative effort.
