About

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.

    The 'Sketches' Project

    Sketches (2017) is an experimental film that collages oral history and archives with a fictional narrative to explore themes of displacement, lineage, and the construction of meaning.
    Synopsis: A British artist fails to attend his parents' wedding anniversary in order to complete a last-minute commission to sketch beautiful landscapes across Cornwall, but guilt begins to affect his work along the way.

    Sketches 'Studio'

    Studio is the interactive accompaniment to the film. 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. Studio is currently only available on desktop devices due to its complexity.

    Charcoal - 'The Sketches Mixtape' (Work-in-progress)

    Charcoal is the next part of the project. It is a 'sequel' to the film in the form of an 18 track hip-hop mixtape, extending the meaning of the film from first-generation immigration to second-generation immigration. More info to come soon.
