"Yek Video’ye Bedoun’e Onvaan" (that means “An Untitled Video” in Farsi) is the first piece that I created since moving to the United States. In a public space in San Francisco, I filmed myself shaving my beard without soap or water, which is difficult and painful. With this video, I confront my experience of living in a new place and the possibility of a transformation of my identity. A change that can be painful, violent and possible injustice of that transition.
