Reframe Iran is a multi-platform story about contemporary Iranian art. In virtual reality, users experience nine Iranian artist studios throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. These artists share the heavy burden they have to represent Iran through their work and, yet, many of them have been living in exile for decades.
