About the Artwork:

A few years ago, Amin Davaie had a goal in mind that proved impossible to attain. He had decided to study Design and Technology at Parsons, The New School of Design in New York. However, since life circumstances in Iran often take us on a different path than intended, he also involuntarily had to change his. This eventually changed his professional trajectory.
Today, Saman Tehrani, who had recently collaborated with Amin on a few projects, is studying at the same university and majoring in the same field. The duo decided to collaborate again to digitally represent Amin’s unfulfilled wish within the context of an interactive installation, while maintaining that any representation is always incomplete.

The head sculpture located in Tehran, Iran maintains its orientation in sync with Saman’s head orientation in realtime. Wearing a headband equipped with sensors Saman lives his ordinary life in New York while at the very same moment, a physical presence of him is being experienced in Tehran.
