Fauxlographic is a performative installation that takes place within an ethno-dysphoric cloning lab, where one clones themself in order to analyze their diasporic anxiety. The clones enact sonic rituals in Farsi, English and Perz- ish, based on multiple sources of information including embodied memories, and wikileaks cables concerning Iran.
