images are from a recent project
revolving around race and sexuality. I find clay to be a very physical,
sexual, and sensual material; an appropriate material through which to
talk about the human body. As a young Iranian student at Emily Carr,
most of my work is about race, this project focuses on the sexual and
physical experiences of race. There was a short sound clip accompanying
this piece which was a recording of me telling a story about being
confronted by a stranger about my American
citizenship and ability to speak two languages. I tied this story in
with poetry about the body and sexuality.
