Within my work, I am examining how images and objects change their value when detached from their established meanings and put into new connections. Existing images, cultural artefacts, artistic concepts are dropped into shifted local contexts. Media specifications are altered, materials exchanged. A contentual focus within this process is the study of social conditions and media perceptions of the Middle East and more particularly Iran.

I am half Iranian and half German and I am directly relating artistic projects to the construction of my own identity.

Videos, installations and performances are used as conceptual mixed media trial tests, that are reconsidering visual memory, image perceptions, stereotypes and political conditions between Orient and Occident.
