“A Peculiar Place i. (Տարօրինակ մի տեղ ա․)”  is a short experimental work by Anna Grigorian, shot entirely on cellphone. The foley sounds and traveling lights are trying to discern the immediate surroundings, and seemingly habitual surfaces. The work is created almost 9 thousand kilometers away from home.

“A Peculiar Place i. (Տարօրինակ մի տեղ ա․)” is also included in ABODE experimental film tribute to Takashi Ito within the framework of EXPLORATORY VISIONS Animation + Experimental + Avant Garde program curated by David King (Australia).
