“Sahaf” generally belongs to the series “Shifting Gravity.” All pieces of the series “Shifting Gravity” are each a concise and concentrated focus on a singular physical gesture. The close examination of the gesture reveals the strange physical lows of the world in which the gesture exists, and the body performing it.
