I’m So Glad to Tell You
“I’m so glad to tell you” is an interactive installation based on dialogue sequences of famous Iranian and Western movies. Presented on multiple monitors, the classical shot/reverse shot patterns get replaced with recordings of the spectators in the gallery space. The live images follow the same editing and camera angles as the originals, revealing their mechanism of storytelling. Changing their role from the observer to the observed, the spectator is blurring the boundary between fiction and reality and the similarities and differences in both visual imaginaries become visible.
