Synergies between the arts of carpet design and animation fostered the creation of Farsh-e-Parandeh, which can be roughly translated as ‘Flying Carpet’.Farsh-e-Parandeh is an animated aerial-projected carpet that reflects the renowned twelfth-century philosopher Attar’s Conference of the Birds(1177). Attar’s story is structured by a journey that from its point of departure to its endpoint comprises seven precarious valleys. This ancient story is comparable to today’s story of humanity on the move. Inspired by Attar’s allegorical story, Farsh-e-Parandeh shows the birds journeys, but in a non-linear cyclic narration. Through looping metaphoric action moments, each of these bird loops represents our sequential human life stages such as exploration, breadwinning, friendship, falling in love, parenthood, childhood, and loneliness.
