“Axis Mundi” A Video Poem-Earth Day 2021
In celebration of Earth Day 2021 and the diversity of our planet, the Centre for Creative practices is inviting you to the launch of an eco-video poem, “Axis Mundi”, written and filmed by Csilla Toldy.
The video poem is based on Csilla’s poem, “My head is the Earth”, and it will be recited in 20 languages, some rare, such as Maori or Hiligaynon or Algonquin.
I am thrilled to contribute in this project with a translation and audio of Persian Language.

This work titled “Tree of Life” is inspired by Iordanis piano piece titled “As the Leaves Fall”. This song is very meaningful, deeply emotional, and uses nature as a metaphor.
When I first listened to ‘As the leaves fall’ I was deeply moved. My first instinct was to illustrate the falling leaves as I felt it reflected the poignancy of the music. I continued to allow the music to direct my imagination which later would lead to this short animation. My intention was to create feelings of hope and happiness.
Iodanis composed a brand new piece of music based on one of Nasrin´s paintings called Shahmaran which is the name of an ancient Persian Goddess.
