The Lockdown Mana Saei

The Lockdown is an interactive virtual gallery representing the COVID-19 era and the lockdown as a sound and visual installation. I. am narrating the memory of those days from my perspective as an Iranian woman living in Canada, and through the patterns of Persian carpets. These carpets have witnessed all the challenges and emotions people have been through during the lockdown and represent a home space and the memories of those stay-at-home days. The main components of this installation include vocals in English and Farsi languages, field recordings from Vancouver, photographs of historical Persian carpets and 3D visuals. This project is meant to be online only.
