Para-Event, Mixed Media Installation; Vinyl, Inkjet Print, Fluorescent bulb, 2015.

"Para-event" is set around three archival documents, all of which are records of the failure of American military machines inside Iran in the past three decades. My approach is similar to a fictive investigation. The installation provides clues to the viewers with which they can follow the translator whose job is to investigate photographic evidence and dis/approve their authenticity. Text plays a central role in this installation. In some ways, it is a translation of visual information and archival photographs into light and words, or in other words, the basics of photography; light and paper.
