Swift Memorial is a response to international banks rejecting customers from countries facing sanctions over the past decade. These banks shut Iranian nationals and businesses out of the global financial system, which influenced Iranians in many ways, namely, the decrease of Iranian currency value that resulted in a sudden and unusual inflation in the country. Consequently, many Iranians have suffered from difficult economic conditions. This project is a play on value production, in this case, the value of a purse, which changes for clients based on their nationality. Website
