About The Artwork

I did this project in Talab Gavkhoni in central Iran in 2009, where they were facing a drought. It was done during the 19th Environmental Art Festival in Iran.

I recorded my footprints in this marsh walking barefoot in the water about 8 inches deep. The ground was so smooth that I felt it invited me to get into the water to make my frames. While I was walking, the black soil under the yellow ground dispersed and filled the shape of a rectangular. It took me about 2 hours to make the shape properly and not having any trace in between the rectangles.

I believe my unconscious helps to create my work; this specific piece was inspired by and with nature. As a photographer who is involved with frames and photos, I try to record "Frames" in wide landscapes instead of surrounding them inside. All frames are lasting but mine are not. My presence leaves momentary traces in nature which reflect my passing in various environments.

This photograph is part of permanent collection of Nevada Art Museum in Reno.
