Mosafer, salek, khaneh is an ongoing project that I started in 2012. This work is divided into three parts and consists of handwriting a single word with ink on paper. I start with writing Mosafer (traveller), then Salek (wayfarer) and finally Khaneh (home). I also start writing from the centre. This orderly constructed writing is continuously repeated. Mosafer, salek, khaneh is a symbol of my personal journey in diaspora and how I visualise the emotional and physical impacts of my experience of migration and displacement on my everyday life. The feelings that I have while working on this project in my studio give me some confidence, encouragement, imaginative desire for home, and aspiration and passion for the future.
