You Are Beautiful – Farsi Edition!
This project is a collaboration between Farhad Bahram, Mahmoodreza Nourbakhsh and myself.
Working simultaneously in Tehran and San Francisco, we hit the streets with the You Are Beautiful message, aspiring to create moments of positive self-realization.
For two days in San Francisco, Farhad and I took our hand-painted signs, which were written in two different Farsi fonts, to Union Square, Market Street and the Golden Gate Bridge. We traveled by Bart and MUNI and spoke to anyone who approached us.
At the same time, which is night in Iran, Mahmoodreza was in Tehran. He was driving around with his light-up “taxi” sign - You Are Beautiful - in English. He settled at a coffee shop and photographed its willing occupants with the sign.
With our synchronous expeditions to promote good will, we spread an apolitical message. A message whose intention is a simple act of kindness. By doing this we aim to connect the people of these two diverse cultures, as well as have fun!
