The Better Half is a small model of the public spaces that have been divided for men and women in Iran after the Islamic revolution. The audience is allowed to enter only one of the two parts of the space and would be able to see only half of the screen while hearing the whole sound of the work. The black curtain that I’ve used to divide the space is the material that usually has been used in mosques for separating men and women parts.
