65 years is part of a project called 'People'. ‘People’ is an on-going series of work about human variability, which shows there is a wide range of possible characteristics both physical and mental within the human race. There are many different factors that can contribute to the variation. For instance, environmental factors that can be to do with climate, disease and diet. Cultural factors which may dictate ideology, fashion and how we may mark our bodies. And genetic factors dictated by the gene flow and genetic mutations within gene pools. As we are a social species we have a need to compare ourselves to one another and through this series I want to explore and compare the variations by combining portraits from all walks of life and across time and cultures.

I am an Iran born artist based in London. My work is mainly based on weaving archival photographs together with a focus on the wider concepts of memory and cultural identity. I explore how memory of our experiences can contribute to our perceived identities. I apply the interwoven images to birch plywood surfaces that are then sanded and varnished, resulting in a three-dimensional object. Weaving has become synonymous with my practice, becoming a motif within my work. The process of physically manipulating portraits allows me to explore the relationship between form, colour and surface to illustrate my ideas on memory. I attempt to describe the memories of people and the weavings are a pictorial description of the memory process. Photography for me is the documentation of who we are, what we do; a record of a moment in time. While the photographic medium is the starting point of my practice, I experiment with image manipulation to better illustrate my ideas concerning cross-cultural perspectives on identity.
