Iranian Family

Recent economic issues, global changes, international sanctions, and governmental corruption in Iran have brought about a situation which undermines the stability of family more than before; currently, the foundations of family, the most important social entity in Iran, are in jeopardy. According to figures, cases of divorce, a taboo in the past, are on the sharp increase, and numerous people in Iran are suffering from mental disorders. Therefore, I have embarked on creating a video of a sculpture made of candle which, in a few minutes, manifests how father, mother, and then children, are burnt and hurt, and in the end, what is left of them are haggard, obscure figures washed out by social problems. This stop motion video is full of photos showing the burning process of paraffin.
