As relative as art is in our livelihood, I have echoed as an artist through various mediums and in my own ways to reaffirm the conviction that life itself is an artwork, Irrespective of the creator we are all enfolded by works of art.
These photograph series commemorate the incognito artists in our societies who may have consciously or unconsciously installed works of art in the public. As they take form in these sites a precipitous or gentle, supernatural or fictional, alluring or awful reactions are passed onto the audience sparking readings from various perspective. Color, sound and light play a significant role in this enactment. I started capturing this group portrait with my phone since 2011 in Nima upon realizing that some of them vanished from the spaces due to weather conditions, kids play, demolishing, renovation or construction in the name of development. Now it has become an endless series everywhere I go.
