The piece is inspired by a symbolic Iranian myth about a Persian king who trans- forms into a three-headed monster, witnessing the growth of two snakes from his shoulders. The underlying concept of this myth still lives in us, every single moment we’ve been transformed inevitably, from reality to imagination, from motion to stillness, from internal mood changes and a minuscule virus to a massive explosion, changes us into different forms, stealing from us stability and stillness and turning us to an un-known creature.
