We all knew that here is the place of ordinary is a  multi-channel video installation composed of thirteen videos featuring the natural and historical sites in Iran that are susceptible to degradation (those listed the UNESCO World Heritage Sites). Since 2007, at least forty recorded national sites have been destroyed.
