Living Geology links Tehran’s zones of fast expansion and the overhanging mountains whose enduring wild areas are the tangible limit of urban growth. Each image is one facet of various cubes, multiplying and tricking perspectives. This geometrical fragmentation evokes a collective composition made of multiple hubs, a mix of public and private dynamics, creating webs of heterogeneous positioning.
Mirrors and glass make each image coexist together and with their surrounding, giving importance to the viewer’s body, as the eye illuminates what it contemplates along its displacements. It claims that every knowledge, comprehension and translation is situated and complex, as opposed to the disembodied aerial viewpoint and its illusion of the perfectly known.
