Say Their Names (Against Obvilion) 

Ceramic Vessles and Performance, 2023


I memorized the names of over 500 protestors and civilians killed during the recent uprising in Iran, reciting them in a performance that used my body as a cradle of remembrance to keep their spirits alive. Recognizing the fragility and ephemerality of my own body, I found solace and permanence in a clay vessel. This vessel, a microcosm of my fury and grief, now serves as a refuge and an aural archive. It will preserve the names of those lost, ensuring that future generations can hear and remember them forever.


Performance, 204 Gallery, Department of Art, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. September 20, 2023.

Public Performance, NCECA Conference . March 16th, 2023.
