Revolving is a multi media art project which revisits the semi-colonial history of Iranian Oil Industry. In part, it takes a form of a comics script, printed in traditional tabloid size newspapers, attempting to compare the story of the nationalization of Iranian Oil Industry with the present day political affairs. The comic characters are inspired by cartoon/drawing like advertisements made by Ronald Searle for the British Petroleum company back in 1950s.
I would like to acknowledge the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts for development of this project.
