Parastoo Anoushahpour, Faraz Anoushahpour and Ryan Ferko have worked in collaboration since 2013. Their shared practice explores the interplay of multiple subjectivities as a strategy to address the power inherent in narrative structures. Foregrounding the idea of place as a central focus, their work seeks to both decode their surroundings and trouble the production of images through speculative narration and dialectical imagery. Shifting between both gallery and cinema contexts, recent projects have been presented at Berlinale, Punto De Vista International Documentary Festival, Viennale, Media City Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and others internationally.

Live Feed is an experiment in collective viewing and narration that addresses our highly surveilled public environment. As a group we will watch live CCTV footage that is often inadvertently broadcast and publicly available across the internet. Jumping between locations and timezones around the world, we will narrate these images by simultaneously writing our observations, speculations, and impressions. Together, we will form a script and a voice-over for an unlikely set of found surveillance images. Participants working or thinking in any medium are encouraged to join.
This workshop is free to attend and is presented in partnership with Collective Broadcast Co. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the title LIVE FEED if you wish to participate.
