This wine variety may be universally famous, but for me as an artist who grew up in the Iranian city of Shiraz and who is interested in literature, these two words together are especially inspiring. In Iranian literature, the word wine is used in many metaphors for a diverse variety of meanings, from blood to a friend, from ruby to a fountain, there are countless different layers of connotation for this word to be found in Iranian literature

this project is about finding a way to develop the contemporary perception of wine beyond its definition as a drinkable liquid, to reveal it as a tool for creating something new, as it was for earlier generations. In the context of this project, I plan to create several kinetic and interactive works that explore wine as an energy source, culminating in a large scale installation comprising hundreds of self-designed, 3D-printed batteries that run an installation comprising lights, sounds and visual elements using 100% wine power - even if it is only for a short period of time!
At the same time, this project is looking for finding a new way to create a next development of looking at wine as something more than a drinkable liquid in the current age.
