I found a document of my video diaries,I thaught It might be ...

During my digital photography I've recorded many short films with my Sony DSC-F707 camera. I had never reviewed them carefully before last Monday when I received a phone call from the Artist's House Gallery. They invited me to join a video art exhibition very soon and asked me if I knew some other guys who had such artworks in that field .I remembered two of my friends who have had some experience in video art.

First, I recalled Golriz who was a fine art senior student in CSM College in London, then I thought my friend Yasser might join us he was an industrial design student in Honar University and he has some performances and installations here and there.

I decided to mix my previous short clips & sort them to create a new atmosphere out of them .I had to watch them carefully and choose some of those clips that were playable in public then sort them impressively.

I spent over 8 hours to find the best clips and 3 hours to sort them. I think that this collection may seem complicated & strange but I love it because it shows my tryout through my imaging challenge that I've had these years. but I unfortunately had recorded different kinds of music in them that were played from a radio or cassette player or were played live by some musicians.

I couldn't find Golriz but I sent Yasser's Video too. The opening is tomorrow and I 'm waiting…

ن�س ن�س هاي امروز ما كنارهم نگاه داشته است يا دست دست كردن هايمان؟ كبودي زير چشمان عشق كه به تنهايي زيباست، حالا با كنارآمدن دو موجود با لبهايشان كامل مي شود
دست: دستان تو كه حامي ن�س ن�س هاي من است دست راستت است كه دوستش داري يا آن يكي؟
س�يد روسري ات را دوست داشتي يا نه؟ كبودي زيرآن همه قرمزش را كه مثل ماهي توي قلب من يواش است
وديگر كمتر مي ترسد....

براي تو امشب چه دارم جز طلاطم ايي كه روي دكمه هاي كي برد است تا حر� ها را پيدا كند و به تو بگويد
بگويد براي تو امشب چه دارم روي دكمه هاي كي برد؟ حر� به حر�، آرام، زير پنجره ، لباني را كه جاي بوسه را بلد هستند بر تن قاصدك پيدا شده در اطاق در بسته كه مقابل آينه ايستاده ها مي كند تا بخار كند اينه و ترا ببيند نه خودش را

كه بي صدا ترين بود شور زد براي آن لحضه دلت
من اينجام
اين دستان گرماگرم را كجا قايم كرده بودي كه من جا خوردم آرام و جايم را زير پنجره جابجا كردم به سمت باد كه در اطاق در بسته نمي دانستم از كجا مي آمد بالا و پايين و مي چرخاند لباني را كه جاي جاي گ�تگوي صامتشان را دوست داشتند و گرماگرم �رصتهايي كه ن�س ن�س زدن تاريكيها را كوتاه تر مي كرد اين دستان گرم كه دوستشان داريم

برگ كوچك روي ديوار/ عاشق است به نوار سرخي كه روي باد مي رقصد با چشمان بسته
و دنباله اش همه را بالا و پايين جذب مي كند از عقابي آن بالا بالا ها تا خسي روي زمين ...
حالا زمستان است اين برگ روي ديوار كنده نشده/ در حياط سرماخورده / به تاب موهاي تو بسته
امضا / قاصدك گم و گور تو
از جعبه سربي / دستاني اميد بيرون آمد / و قاصدكي سپيد را به باد داد
اما باد امانت دار خوبي نبود / دور ترها برد قاصدك را روي سپيد� كوه
كه از ديد رس من دور بود
دسترس دستان تو من نبودم آن موقع , ببخش !
قاصدك گم و گور تو / به يادت هست اما/ دل موهاي سيخ سيخش/ به تاب موهاي تو بسته/
باد, DJ wind
هر دو مان را در حياط سرماخورده مي چرخاند/ و نگاه ترا/ و دل مرا مثل آن برگ كوچك روي ديوار

به محتويات جعبه عاشق است و كنجكاو
دسترس دستان تو من/ در هر رقص / و آسمان� دورترها / كه اينجا پيش ماست...

چقدر چسبيد دست من به دست تو جه كي�ي كردند تنهامان به برقص و اينه گالري از تصوير ما دلش غنج ر�ت مي دانم كه مي پايد دستهامان
گنجيشكه شما داره رودستت لونه درست مي كنه ها .... بعدش مياد با تو بپره بره اون بالا بالا ها
-- چراغي كه اينجا روشن كردي باعث شده شاپرك من بيايد بنشيند روي دست تو كه به چراغ است بپا نپروني بره بسوزه ها آخه دوست داره كلي ....
اينا كنار تو ام تا هميشه بي انكه برگي بلرزد ما عشق را نمي �هميم اما امروز كلي باد مي آمد كنار اين همه بي حوصله ستاره شدي ممنون خارپشت عزيز كه از سونا اومدي بيرون توي حياط سرما ميخوري سينوزيت ميگيري!
-سينوزيتو دارن نميگيرن !؟

A recent Interview!!!! Hahaha>>
with maire a french cutural reporter

>Salam again marei >Chetori? My answer is between your


>I remember you told me that you went to London, Italy... I wanted to know if Arts was for you a meaning that give you the chance
>to be connected with foreign countries?

AMIRALI: I DONT LOOK AT ART IN THIS WAY BUT I WILL LOOK FORWARD INTO WAYS WHICH MY WORK CAN BE SEEN BY MORE AND MORE PEOPLE



>Is Art a positive way of travelling for you?
AMIRALI: YES BUT ITS ONLY HAPPENING ONLY RECENTLY & I HOPE IT CONTINUES THIS WAY
>
>As an artist, do you have all the freedom of creation you need? Or is there things you dare not do?
>AMIRALI: I DO WHAT EVER I WANT TO DO BUT IT DOESNT MEAN THAT I MUST SHOW THEM TO EVERY ONE

>In wich country your installation with the veil and the clim air was it shown? Why do you think they decide to choose your
>installation? What did they like? Was there any symbol of Iran? And was it for you a way of sending messages to foreign
>countries?

AMIRALI:IN ITALY VENICE THINK IT WAS SO ABSTRACT AND AT SAME TIME WITH A GOTHIC ATMOSPHIER MAY BE THAY DID LIKE THE MUSIC OR MAY BE THAY DID LIKE THE TOPIC I DID NOT JOIN THE EXHIBITION BUT THEY SAID THAT IT WAS SOMTHING SPECIAL BETWEEN THE OTHER IRANIAN VIDEOS AND I THINK IT WAS BECAUSE I`M A GRAPHIC DESIGNER TOO WITH MY OWN INTERSTS IN PURE IMAGES I MEAN THE FORM (MORE THAN THE MEANING) IS IMPORTANT TOO ME . AND I DONT THINK THAT I WAS RELATED TO IRAN BUT AN ARTIST ALWAYS IS SENDING A MESSAGE (MEANINGS FORMS COLORS SOUNDS AND...) BUT THE DESTINATION IS NOT A SPECIFIC PLACE AND WHAT EVER IS TAKEN FROM A MESSAGE IS UP TO THE TASTE AND THE UNDERSATANDING OF THE RECIVER OF IT

>What do you prefer in your job? what is you goal?
AMIRALI: > I CONCENTRATED AND FOCUS ON THE BEAUTIES WHITCH ARE CONNECTED TO SOME MEANINGS BUT I DONT INSIST ON THE MEANINGS, I KEEP SOMETHING FOR MY AUDIENCES TO EXPLORE ...

>Why did you choose to call your gallery parking gallery? If I remember well it is because you made it in your house's garage... isn't
>it?
>
YES BECAUSE ITS SIMPLY LOCATED IN OUR PARKING(GARAGE)A PARKING FOR MY "FIAT 132" AND A PLACE FOR YOUNG NEW IDEAS AND EXPERIENCES IN FIELD OF ART
>Well Amir Ali, I hope my questions were clear...
>YES THEY WERE ;)
>While waiting to your answer I wish you very good things for you and your creations for the new year.
>
>AND THE ARTIST THAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR IS shirin neshat A FAMUS ARTIST FROM NEWYORK SHE IS FAMUS FOR HER VIDEOS AND PHOTOS SEARCH 4 HER U WILL FIND MORE
TAKE CARE AND KEEP IN TOUCH
