It seems that every 30 years we destroy memories. With each photo burnt or Deleted we allow a tiny pixel to be lost from the greater image which is our Collective memory, that’s when reality can be re-arranged to suit the editor of the day. AKSbazi.com started working in April 2009 with an express hope to provide a forum for ordinary Iranians to recreate their own image, away from the prevalent clichés and exotic short-hands used by various acting editors. In a series of games our members show Iranian spaces and moods familiar to us all, but not ordinarily available to the outsider. Although it started life as a personal digital installation, AKSbazi.com has now become an invaluable archive of moments of life in Iran through the lens of it’s ordinary citizens. It is now a collective effort creating a platform for ‘citizen documentation’; a vault to safe-keep pixels that must not be lost again.
