In 1995 she was back to Teheran for some sad family matters. During this painful journey she found a box full of old photos of her and her family. She decided to keep them planning to use those pictures one day, in some way.
Two years later a project called Updating a family album (1997/2000) started from those images and became a way to cope with a past that was still so present.
"I have used computer technology as a kind of time machine to update my family album, to lend it more color and life, to renovate and revive it.
By the use of anachronisms such as collaging modern stamps on the clothes of some of my ancestors, and by inventing backgrounds that are obviously out of context with them, my aim was to see them in a new light and to transplant them into a different time, a different place."
