Remembrances of the Iranian Immigrants of Northern California
Hall of Reflections is a multi-dimensional art project that chronicles the complex migrant experiences of men and women of the Iranian Diaspora in
Northern California through site-specific and web-based installations.

Drawing on Persian and Islamic designs and structures, Hall of Reflections creates a unique archive of personal photographs and narratives to explore themes of loss, preservation, displacement and belonging, specific to the historical experience of Iranian immigrants.

Inspired by the Talar, traditional mirrored gathering hall of historical buildings in
Iran, the permanent installation at the Persian Center presents an assemblage of photographs and texts embedded in mirror and glass structures and provides a public space of gathering and exchange for the Iranian community.

Hall of Reflections' web project, Reflections and Remembrances brings together a large number of personal photographs and stories collected from the Iranian immigrant community of Northern California through personal interviews, correspondences and a series of writing workshops, making them available to a wide Internet audience.
