There are many ways in which people can find a strong connection with nature; Iranian artist Shirin Abedinirad uses art as her way. Yet what makes this even more powerful is the fact that she encourages her audience to reflect -- quite literally -- on the same endeavor. Through the use of mirrors, Shirin Abedinirad creates unique paths that bring the heavens to Earth in a simple yet powerful way.

Of course, there lies a deeper meaning to Shirin Abedinirad's work. My Modern Met writes, "In utilizing mirrors and skyward reflections, the insightful artist sought to convey the relationship between the human mind and nature's distinct elements. Specifically, the mirrors were used to symbolize water in the midst of Italy's unwavering concrete walkways and Iran's dry land."
