Heartache of life -2017
When I decided to move to US for study, I never thought that I can't see my family. I always had wishes to come US but I didn't know how is hard to be far away from people who I love them. I only keep in touch with their online images. I feel a big fence between us that makes hard to see them. So the still images plays a key role for me, these are only things that I can talk and share my emotions to them.
The arrangement of placing the characters in grid system states the order of categorizing the behavior in which character still insist to be maintained in its own previous system and have a struggle to keep the prior values and behaviors. It is also examination and endeavor to see the only reactions driving from changes and is along with very surprising feeling.

So, life analogues to a box bringing experiences which are define the meaning by individuals.
Grab and Ungrab I-2016
In the "Grab and Ungrab", I aim to show that humans always receive something from the environment and every moment is affected by the world. The performance displays the concept of being in different positions metaphorically. Also humans faced with new and unknown experiences. They consciously or unconsciously are grabbing new information, sights, convictions and can have different experiences from their environment.

Do you like to eat me?-2015
"Do you like to eat me". This project was about Cabot-Koppers Superfund Site in Gainesville, Florida, and the “Disaster” that is around us. I had to make a piece, which is related to mankind, and everything that he makes to destroy the world, particularly based on this specific location. At the beginning of the video, I showed that I am making bread with hazmat.suit to bring the contamination process of making bread concept. Because bread in Iranian culture has a special value and it is metaphor of life, and literally, life without bread doesn’t have any meaning. It seems that we are going to contaminate our life. I use the soil of Kabbot- Copper site in recipe of the bread. Then at the end I used again that soil on my head to refer the famous Iranian idiom “ Soil on head” which has a different meaning when you addressing yourself or other people, but generally it means when something bad happened to you or you are in bad situation, or shame on you. As a result, everything goes around comes around. از ماست که بر ماست

Tarof is a traditional Iranian practice of etiquette. It governs the way people act when offering food or consideration to others, buying or selling things and negotiations between people in conversation.
