Dopamine (2017)

The brain translates occurrences outside the body and communicates through a nervous system. The hunger for accumulating energy through carbohydrate consumption is the brain responds to once dopamine is released. Dopamine is an installation that is made of Sugar and Iron. There is a picture which is pasted on one of the Iron structures. The image is the members of the first Majlis (parliament) in Iran. The first parliament in Iran is the consequence of constitutional revolutions in 1905-11. The first public protests of the constitutional revolution were sparked by a dispute over sugar prices. In 1905, the governor of Tehran ordered that some sugar merchants are bastinadoed for refusing to lower their prices. A group of merchants, tradesmen, and mullahs took sanctuary (bast) in a Tehran mosque. Government officials dispersed the group, who then took refuge in a shrine south of Tehran. By January 1906 the Muzaffar al-Din Shah Qajar agreed to their demands, which included the formation of an ‘adalatkhanah (house of justice).
