七情 (qi qing) is an interactive performance, initially developed as part of 24/X, an event hosted by the NYUAD Interactive Media department where 10 students from diverse disciplines came together for 24 hours to create a project based around the theme of PUSH/PULL. This piece was developed and performed in collaboration with Leo Asatiani.
Two video narratives of the artists, filmed individually, run simultaneously. The content displayed during the performance is created in real-time by button clicks of the artists as they silently try to hold a mediated conversation. The narratives are based on the seven emotions, referred to as 七情 (qi qing), of humans (喜怒憂懼愛憎欲) as described in The Book of Rites: happiness (喜), anger (怒), sorrow (憂), fear (懼), love (愛), disgust (憎), desire (欲).
Special thanks to professors Scott Fitzgerald, Alexis Gambis and Aysan Celik for all the support.
