Alaleh Alamir - La couleur de leau (2006)
Contemplating the colour of water, an inner experience. “La Couleur de leau” is part of “Visual Haikus”. Visual Haikus started in 2006 during a retreat. In these short videos (each 1-3 min long) the artist singles out and explores one element, shifting and stretching our perception beyond what appears to be commonly established. When she started the project, Alaleh couldnt possibly hope to find financial support, so she decided to purposely use very rudimentary equipment : She wants the haikus to preserve their sketchy dimension so as to render the intimate quality of these inner experiences.
