The Activist Box Set was a multi-medium project that required us to move beyond simplistic understanding of a figure in history into a richer and variegated interpretation of the life of a figure in the form of a commemorative box set. My activist was Forugh Farrohzad, a iconoclast and poet who was also a strong feminist during a time and place (Iran in the sixties) where it wasn’t a popular or easy thing to do. The box set was to be a book, dvd & case, and box. All elements of the set were to be cohesive and inspired and illustrative of the life of our activist.
