This piece named Simorgh is a multi-sound and sculptural installation created from thirty hand and machine made birdhouses, installed in a space like a spiral. The juxtaposition of these fragmented pieces in the space unifies them, making them complete each other. The sounds are collected from identified birds around the world. The whole piece is inspired by the story of Simorgh. Each birdhouse emanates individual identified bird sounds, which together represent different people around the world
#KeyvanShovir adapts the tale of the #Simorgh, and the potent metaphor of psychological and physical travel in his installation.he does so to address including immigration and displacement. Shovir revised the project in the midst of the continuing debate over the #Muslim travel ban, which applied to seven countries and coincidentally references Attar's seven valleys.
