2022.03.31 - Dot by dot, pixel by pixel: Online Lecture Performance by Mélika Hashemi
As a part of the exhibition Dot by dot like a baby gazelle curated by Mitra Fakhrashrafi, La Centrale is proud to present Dot by dot, pixel by pixel: Online Lecture Performance by Mélika Hashemi.
Mélika Hashemi’s online lecture performance bridges the process of tattooing, “dot by dot” to her ongoing research on Islamic digital worldmaking wherein which, like the tattoo, both the Universe and the pixel are sustained one motion at a time and capable of drawing infinite iterations. Taking up portals, including the accompanying AR filter Hashemi designed as a part of “Witness (This Could be Magic)”, this online lecture performance is an invitation to consider the interface in relationship to infinity.
Mélika Hashemi is an artist-researcher based in Kitchener, ON. Using art as a device, she finds ways to renew intersectionality and empowerment beyond screens and institutional walls. More information
