@gallery16 looking at early negatives for @dirosaart project with Griff Williams and Troy Peters whom I have known and enjoyed working with for the past 16 years. G16 has always supported artists, experimental projects, editions, artists’ books, and more. Thank you!

The constant (re)mirroring of the heavenly and earthly seen through the reflection of the sun in the center of a fountain in the garden. A lifelong conversation between two mystics, Shams Al-Dīn Tabrīzī and Rumi. 1590.

from ‘Tarjuma-i Thawāqib-i manāqib’ (A Translation of Stars of the Legend), in Turkish. Translation requested in 1590 by Sultan Murād III from the Persian abridgement of Aflākī. #shams #rumi

Great to see in @artforum. Thanks @for_site and @alrugcom in Jampur, Pakistan, specifcally Shehad Yasir, Shan Yasmin, and Mohammad Qasim who hand-weaved my rug for the project. #sanctuary #artforum #artandsocialspace

@for_site repost: Would you believe us if we told you this is just one of two books, each 145 pages long, containing the weaving instructions for a single rug (in this case, @alaebtekar’s)? Ala’s design required 552,960 knots (!!!), and was woven by three weavers — Shehad Yasir, Shan Yasmin, and Mohammad Qasim — in Jampur, Punjab, Pakistan. Thanks to @alrugcom for sharing this behind-the-scenes perspective. #Sanctuary

Clay tiles waiting to dry before being fired in the kiln. New site-specific work for the @dirosaart 'Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times' show opening this Fall. Hands working, while my heart and thoughts are with everyone and their families up there right now dealing with this fire

The Abbasi house, built during the late 18th c. is an example of Kashan's residential architecture, which formed during the #Saljuq and #Safavid periods and continued through the #Qajar era.
The house has six courtyards, and one of the rooms has a ceiling designed with mirror pieces so as to give the impression of a starry sky under the nocturnal glitter of candlelight.
