Part of the Asia Pacific Triennial exhibit at GoMA.
Farsi script painted by the artist on the walls and floor of the whole room – you must walk over and through it to access other parts of the exhibition.

Rasha, it was stunning. My daughter Miss Eight (actually Miss Nine now) has just reminded me that there was a corresponding kid’s exhibit, where they (on a computer) pick an animal shape, then use the Farsi script for the name of that animal to fill the shape in their own style – they had lots of fun. I have added them here: http://lightswimming.com/2013/02/06/persian-for-kids-parastou-forouhar/

When I was there, there was a young girl in ridiculously high neon orange heels. It was an amazing contrast. You might be able to see them if you zoom in on the photo on my blog. Hilarious!
