 “Do certain visceral qualities of urban decay influence our experiences, memories, and,
ultimately, our sense of history?
To answer these questions, I use a multi-disciplinary ap- proach to study specific locations through the opac-
ity of distant recollections. My studies delve into the relationship between physical decay and deconstruc- tive abstraction. Having been exposed to revolution/ war as a teenager in Iran, my encounters with death/ destruction have allowed me to draw parallels between building deconstruction and the despair, yet resiliency, of their exiled inhabitants. By blurring the boundaries between progress and ruin, I am making an observation regarding the misguided inevitability of evolution.”
