Studio is an interactive accompaniment to the 2017 short film 'Sketches' by Zuhair Mehrali. While the film is a meditation on constructing meaning of 'foreign' history and geography, Studio encourages a deconstruction of that meaning. This is achieved by allowing you to explore and interrogate the audiovisual elements within the film in 'real-time', raising questions of information-authenticity and fact-fiction disparity in oral narratives.
