#onlineactivist (2018-Ongoing)

Instagram is the only social media left unfiltered in Iran. Being away from my hometown has made this platform my main source of news reading, where I get updates about current political and social climate in Iran; from a mixture of meme posts, friend’s stories and news agencies. #onlineactivist  is a social-media art project that uses Instagram as a platform to explore the relationship between our online and offline social roles.

In respond to weekly news of Iran a story would be posted on my Instagram account, which is developed out of searching Instagram's GIF collection based on the words found in the news text.
