I have been witnessing this Caspian pollution time and time again from my childhood. About 4years ago while walking on Caspian side in the early morning a silent voice of the sea asked me to show its pollution. Economy of my country is based on oil, that's why there was no earthly reason to just complain about it. From that time I was looking for an aesthetic way which can point to this problem in a beautiful way.

Time passed and again in one silent quarantine morning I found myself at the right time in the right place. Xazar showed pollution as beautiful as it can not be imagined, with the reflection of the symbolic landmark of the country. On one hand we are building gorgeous, shiny constructions, but on the other hand discard the stain to the surface of our priceless gift from mother earth.
