7 pilgrims board a vessel, voyaging from barcelona travelling east, stopping in 7 port cities around the mediterranean.
the poem, which is the video trailer to this upcoming project, alludes to two trajectories of a journey: the inward and the outward.
the plight of the inner mystical journey, what can most be articulated by the persian notion of longing; with the outer journey propagated by nomadic migration patterns across lands and seas.
who is the wanderer? the sufi, the sephardic, alice?
the poem and subsequent project explores "the deconstruction of the sublime" by retracing these two trajectories.
written in english, and translated into farsi, then translated again into the soundscape of the voice over artist, neda zahraie, the poem is simply an invitation to enter, partake, and observe the tale as it unfolds.
