Artist Statement

After finishing my undergraduate work in Tehran I moved to Chicago to pursue a masters. However, currently I am living in my computer and my computer is not Tehran nor Chicago. My computer is a space that allows me to live in both cities. I can watch television with my parents or take a walk in the streets of Tehran with my friends. I can find translations for my words to communicate better in my new city or learn all the sports team names to sound more ‘Chicagoan’. Yet, my computer always warns me, I am a stranger in both cities.
