Heroes Martyrs Legends is a series of headshots of young Iranian student activists, executed before and after the revolution (1357/1979), representing the outcry of a generation dissolved in the zeitgeist of the romantic notion of a selfless revolutionary who in massive unified action, contributed to a major shift in the political direction of the country and the faith of the region. Fragmented, with varied degrees of articulation, the images for the series are downloaded from various internet sites, their bitmaps translated into beads, to create a commemorative to a silenced generation.
