Political and Economical Climates/Gross Domestic Product Reports

Sheida Soleimani

Saturday, March 14 - 10:50AM to 11:10AM
Celestin A

GDP, which stands for Gross Domestic Product, is a term used to refer to the highest trades and products exported from a country or region. In my photographic scenarios, cultural symbols and signifiers create a narrative in regards to my position as an Iranian-American viewing the Middle East from an outside lens. Specific colors and political figures form a symbolic lexicon that runs throughout the series, while objects become indicators to a country's GDP. Each of the photographs addresses a specific time in history, while alluding to how both the East and West have responded to societal occurrences.
