as an Iranian who has resided in various parts of the world, i am curious about the nuances of sacred spaces in the shifting cultures around me. my work engages the audience in my exploration of spiritual truths, human behavior, healing, and human relationships to the sublime.

i utilize persian architectural structures and patterns that evoke paradise & through the play with different mediums such as music, sculpture & video, personify human fragility in the contrasting positions between man and nature.

as my practice progresses, i have begun to question the idea of paradise, and am invested in manipulating light within space to create pause and meditative room to celebrate an honest struggle with truth.
