Machine 855

Ghost Player


Paper mache clay and machinery 


Recration of the persian peep box, playing snippets of artist's childhood memories.

This is not just a machine to entertain you. It's a trap, it will record your memory and playback it back to you over and

over again.

Shahr Farang is here, come and watch, yield the old showman in the street, calling all the neighborhood’s kids to come and watch over and over again the same pictures of the Raree-Show. He was standing in the middle of the neighborhood with his Peep-Box. The traditional colorful dress of his and that wool hat made him look very different, strange and interesting. “He has come from the magical world and sells pictures of the places that are not here, pictures of hope”, I thought at that time.
