Morehshin Allahyari and I have been working on a project titled Your Night My Day. On March 22nd we will be presenting the work at UNT - on the Square. The show will run through April 3rd. Your Night My Day is an online and digital intercultural collaborative art project between artists in Iran and the U.S. which began in the Fall of 2010. The project explores the process of cultural exchange- or lack thereof - between Iran and the United States. It employs digital media and online collaboration and serves as a bridge to create an intercultural dialogue and exhibition.

Last November I exhibited a large scale project that I had been working on for 2 years. The exhibition, titled Finding Home: A Cabinet of Curiosity, contained 8 groupings or works, that told my story of finding home through a cross-cultural quest in a non-narrative way. The works tracked my story through Paris, Istanbul, Chicago, London, Edinburgh, and Montreal, places I feel connected to. Each grouping contained many elements such as altered books, memoryscapes, sculptures, ceramic installations, video, soundscapes, digital photographs, found text, memory trinkets, and many more details.
Some of the images from the exhibition can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151178048404473.451576.690354472&type=1&l=ec4619b044
