Featured Video

exodus‘  / film by Acci Baba, music by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (2016)

An experimental film to explore behaviors of an artificial system reaching the point of saturation. Central to the work is the aesthetic combination of geometry and life, expressed by collinear structure and living ants. The sugar water falls from the sky, artificially creating ecosystem for ants to survive. Ants walk along the infinite path, leaving pheromones for the others to follow. Soon one of the ant chose to escape from the saturated system, realizing they have been walking on a infinite path. The others followed and continued walking in to the void as they form an another circular loop. Through the perspective of micro organism, the artwork finds the relation between the viewers to reflect the formula emerging from the hyper reality.

Code of Silence‘  / film by Acci Baba, music by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (2015)

A derivative film work created based on his sculpture artwork ‘Code of Silence’. The concept of this work seeks philosophical explanation of universal principles resembled by minimal elements. Domino is used as a metaphor toward ’cause and effect”, observed by a monkey that represents an evolutionary juncture of an animal and humankind. Decoding the sculpture artwork ‘Code of Silence’ will explain what the monkey had seen.

genesis‘  / film by Acci Baba, music by Mohammad Reza Mortazavi (2017)

An experimental film to examine metaphysical conception of the beginning. The work embodies the philosophic and the scientific perceptions of materialization, expressed as various forms of origin. Additional to the conceptions, the scene is blended by artist’s indefinable memory represented as a white bright room and tunnel leading to a source of light. The screenplay crossovers between the reality and memory, generating a imagination unrestricted by plot and time.
