Hi! I’m Darya!

I am a person studying social and political history at Carnegie Mellon University. I was born and raised in Reston, Virginia.

The practice of looking into histories and seeing the displacement and disturbance of people and places for things that they cannot change has long shaped my work.

I find in the Iranian culture I was raised with a reverence for nature and the changing of seasons. This is why biological materials are of my primary concentration in artmaking.

I am based in Pittsburgh, PA and Reston, VA.

A brief resume can be found here.

Wanna contact me?
