Lida Shanehchiyan: Reverie

Lida Shanehchiyan: Reverie

Lida Shanehchiyan Reverie

Lida Shanehchiyan is an Iranian-Canadian interdisciplinary artist and designer passionate about making everyday life more satisfying by creating thoughtful and striking visual products. Reverie is a visually expressive exploration of daydreaming, a self-healing mechanism that Shanehchiyan utilizes to contend with difficult moments in her life. As a child, Shanehchiyan would use this technique to conjure positive experiences that could detach herself from bitter moments in life. For instance, she often wished to become a mermaid so that she could swim beneath water all of the time. Her wishful thoughts were romantic, innocent, and childish, speaking to wonder and power behind the imagination of daydreaming.
