Perhaps this is because a wish seems to bubble to the surface only in dark moments of desperation or despair, and I’ve been lucky to encounter few of these in the recent past. But the new work, Unison of Sky (January 25, 2016), a performance by artists Samira Davarfara and Shaghayegh Cyrous, illustrated that a wish needn’t exist only as a counterpoint to hopelessness.

Unison of Sky is a performance and collaboration with Iranian artist Shaghayegh cyrous that took place between Iran and United States, the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art and CCA . We made a ceiling portal between the two cities via Skype. Participants lied down on their backs and gazed on a projection of people on the other side of the world. They were able to give their written wish to the artist, who then translated it – between Farsi and English – and spoke through the portal.

2018 Sarpol-e Zahab earthquake

with magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck western Iran near its border with Iraq at 20:07 local time (19:37 local time in Iraq) on Sunday night, 25 November 2018 injuring over 700 people and sending fearful residents running into the street. One fatality and 45 injuries were also reported in the neighboring Iraq. According to CNN, some houses were destroyed in several rural areas of Qasr-e-Shirin and SarPol-e zahab.

As soon as the quake stopped, several rescue teams were quickly dispatched, the authorities said. We as a artistic team went there to make a moment for the children. This project tried to help them remember their dream and hope. Most of the children lost their family and lived as a homeless, No hope and no life.

The project help them to think and draw their feelings and talk about their memory, Sadness, fears and happiness. Children and us decided together change the Iron sheds to a better place for living. Full of joy and hope. We cover all Iron sheds by color and dreams of children. The last night of the year we had dancing and singing night to celebrate the future full of hope.
after mounts we still receiving their feelings and hopes for shining tomorrow .
