Lauren Pakradooni’s interdisciplinary work incorporates drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and sound. She gravitates towards exploring space, making use of the graphic qualities of print, enveloping character of sound and the literal space of sculpture and performance. Lauren spent 2011 teaching printmaking in Doha, Qatar and in 2013 will be an artist in residence at the Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY. She received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011.

"This recording began as a collection of found tape from the streets of Doha, Qatar. These whole cassette fragments of mostly unlabeled material were edited into handmade loop tapes. The first stage of this project was in an abandoned girls academy in downtown Doha, where the tapes were played through a relic of a PA system. This recording is a compiling of these found sounds with some additions of other cassette loops. It was recorded in Doha, Qatar and briefly in USA." - Pak
