WATER PANICS IN THE SEA
2011
Digital stop-frame animation
14 min
Color w/ sound
Dimensions Variable
Water Panics in the Sea, is the fourth in a series of short films based on the five elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Ether. Constructed through a process of iterative magnification and manipulation of minute details derived from mono-type prints and drawings, the film seeks to question our habituated perception by an intricate use of scale, distance, time and space. Reflecting on human themes of odyssey and conquest, the film follows the voyage of a ghost ship as it traverses the ocean waters through an accelerated, indistinct chronology, underscoring the seemingly infinitesimal, the absurd, and the epic. Soundtrack performed and composed by Shahzad Ismaily.

Laleh Khorramian works in a vacillating process between stop motion and digital animation and more traditional media of collages, monotypes, painting and drawing. Her work is based on the premise of experimenting with the process of chance as a starting point for discovering possibilities of the unknown, whose details and outcomes she then investigates and repositions. Her pieces seek to communicate the uncanny as a constructed parallel universe. From these phenomenological investigations she attempts to open an unpredictable space where fiction can capture aspects of life that are normally invisible.

Khorramian is currently working on an ongoing cycle of films structured around the five elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether.

Laleh Khorramian was born in Tehran, Iran. She lives and works in New York.
