My Grandma, My Mom and I 

Inspired by Dennis Oppenheim's performance, "Transfer Drawing”. After a long waiting, my grandma was able to come to Canada from Iran. I asked her to describe life in one word. I guessed the word and wrote it back on her forehead. We turned this performance between me, my grandma, and my mom. The result is what you see on this photo. The words are patience, movement, and effort written in Persian.
