Image Statement: "Weaving Strings of Grief: Woman, Life, Freedom" is an emotional, artistic response to the profound sociopolitical circumstances unfolding in Iran. In light of the ongoing struggle for personal freedom and gender equality, this fiber-based artwork is a tribute to the spirit of the Iranian people, particularly women, who confront oppression with unwavering resilience and those who lost their lives for freedom. Responding to the open call by Surface Design Journal, this installation employs textiles as a unique medium to create artwork that will leave a lasting impression on viewers. Through the emotive language of color, pattern, and fiber technique, "Weaving Strings of Grief" captures the essence of our present moment and seeks to resonate with future generations.
