In August 2003, an environmental art project was exhibited for three weeks in Tehran. In this project, 150 x 160 cm portraits of citizens were installed within the window frames of an incomplete 28-story building’s front facade. The associated lighting system, which consisted of light boxes located behind the portraits, lit up the portraits by fading in, reaching full exposure and fading out. This system was applied for each portrait separately and repeatedly.

Concurrent with implementation of this project, seven of these portraits with the same dimensions and lighting techniques were exposed at the Gallery 13. One of the portraits was installed in the gallery’s window and the others inside the gallery. One of the walls of the gallery was covered with scores of official letters written to the affiliated organizations in order to get the required permits.
