The Koh-i-Noor (which is the name of a famous diamond named well as a Persian translation of ‘Mountain of Light’) makes visual reference to the var- ious facets of the diamond with their polishing connotations of a rough diamond as the Artists that we were selected in the residence had a time and a space to be able to create and polish the idea (the diamond) that each one of us had inside.

It belongs to my project ‘Conversation with the Building’, which was conceived of and completed at the Prairie Center of the Arts in Peoria, Illinois, where I spent three months as an artist-in-residence. The project consists of several site-specific installations that converse with architectural elements in the amazing attic of the old brick studio building (120 years old) that served as a rope factory until the 1970s.
