I had a chance to discover 43°C hot summer Ramadan of Tehran, Iran.

My interest especially in this unique period, which people are sharing restricted-eating/drinking customs, was a relationship between sun and table.

This simple installation is composed by mirror and silver table sets. By inviting sunlight to the table, I have presented this image as a cultural sketch from my short stay in Tehran.


Extra info [Ramadan]
Ramadan (Arabic: رمضان‎ Ramaḍān,Persian: Ramazan IPA: [rɑmɑˈdˤɑːn];variations Turkish: Ramazan) is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which lasts 29 or 30 days. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking and sexual intimacy with their partners[1] during daylight hours and is intended to teach Muslims about patience, spirituality, humility and submissiveness to God.
