- Past-Present, Cooperative Art Project, 2008

The idea was to experience the combination of Iranian traditional handicrafts, specifically pottery, with different and modern art forms and techniques. I cooperated with my brother who is a potter, ceramic artist, and sculptor into the production of a series of artworks. In this collaboration, I implemented new forms of Iranian typography on ceramic and clay material.
