Surabhi Saraf: FOLD

Blanton Museum of Art

"In the projected video, FOLD (2010), a grid of twelve-by-eight frames captures the Indian-born, San Francisco-based artist Surabhi Saraf in jeans and a white shirt as she folds laundry on the couch. Through color, sound, repetition, fragmentation, and multiplication, Saraf turns a prosaic activity into a captivating visual and sonic experience."
