Amnesiac by Behzad Shahravan

Amnesia is a deficit in memory caused by brain damage, disease, or psychological trauma. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost depending on the extent of damage that was caused. The main characteristic of amnesia is the inability to remember vital personal information that is deeply disturbing. People with amnesia cannot recall their memories and experiences. Thus, in order to retain the remnants of their disintegrated recollections, they have to delve into relations that are buried inside their past fantasies; relations that are references for a person’s identity and personality.

A Project by NULLSIGHT, Media arts collective from Tehran, collection of conceptual, practical, and technology-oriented objects, contributing to the promotion of the media-art business.
What defines the identity of distinction is where the self ends and the other begins: the point in which the individual body and the social framework is shaped. NOXTE is based on this idea of liberation of bodies and going beyond boundaries.
The mystical revelation & free exploration of mind & soul while experiencing the trauma of living in the third world country, limitations, boundaries and different kind of social orders, are what NOXTE is trying to observe & share as a different value of art.
The idea of going beyond the boundaries, ignoring the reality & seeking in deeper concepts is the manifest in how the works are selected: the objects that lost their original function for their were merely used decoratively; similar to body itself that is now an old-fashioned entity, falling to pieces in different frameworks.
