Hope and happiness have a deep connection. To reach happiness one should step on the hope road. My motivation to participate in a cooperative projects is due to a common ground I found with forming my corals through the process and materials. My corals shape out of small forms bonded together made with wasted paper and also understanding the meaning of hope in a physical and a natural way rather than symbolic and abstract. To me, the most important aspect of this project was the connection between female ceramists from around the world and their participation as a united concept and the social media as the ground hall. This project for me is to transform despair to hope. Since I am an environmentalist artist, I have made all of my paper cranes with waste papers, newspapers and magazines. My plan for this project is to teach origami cranes with the concept of hope to child labors. Currently they live in the ruins of the city and they reach out to NGOs to learn art and art therapy. By placing a crane on their doorsteps I invite them to participate in creating cranes thinking about their wishes. By making each crane, I will ask the child to write down her wish on the wing. Then I will give the cranes to donators to grant children wishes on New Year. I took the Idea of this project from a famous Persian poem, Saadi in which he says:
Human beings are members of a whole
In creation of one essence and soul
If one member is afflicted with pain
Other members uneasy will remain
If you have no sympathy for human pain
The name of human you cannot retain
I am a multidisciplinary artist with an undergrad in visual arts in 2012 and have been working in the field ever since. My works are mostly oriented around environments and local materials. I was motivated to work in this cooperative project which takes place remotely through the isolation.
