The King-Seat of My Eye is the Place of Repose for the Thought of You
Two photographs hand-cut and interlaced
Inspired by the fourteenth Century Persian poet, Hafez, the title of this piece is the translation of a verse of his poem. King-seat, Shahneshin is an architectural term for the most desirable place within the courtyard of the traditional Iranian house. In this adoring verse, the poet offers the King Seat of his eye to the lover/guest. One photo is from the King-seat of the Ameri House in Kashan, Iran and other is of my eye.
