Homa Shojaie
I make whatever is my “persisting question” at a given moment. This can be making a camera obscura to find the space of the gaze of lovers, painting the color of a particular feeling, fraying canvas to understand spines, or making a projection room in response to a film. I make to know myself, resolve my conflicts, understand mysteries, and capture the light that is inherent in any act of knowing. In my work, I try not to look at things but instead to look into the space of things.
