A Multimedia Experience: Attar’s “Conference of the Birds”

In Fall 2019, Sassan Tabatabai convened a workshop for Digital/Multimedia Expression, in which students created a multimedia online edition of excerpts from The Conference of the Birds. This edition consists of student-created images and collages that strive to retell Attar’s story in a remediated fashion, in an effort to breathe new life into an ancient (and typically under-appreciated in Western universities) text.

A man whose eyes love opens risks his soul –
His dancing breaks beyond the mind’s control. -Farid Attar
