A Media Artist's Response To Failing Diplomacy

When BriAnna Olson's pacifist views were confronted by an adamant American couple, she decided to heed their challenge and head to Tehran-- the epicenter of the Axis of Evil nation.

Amongst a landscape of failed diplomacy and media smear campaigns, she and fellow artist Michael Pope found a society far more alive and hospitable than they'd ever been led to believe.

Like jesters of a modern-day Magellan, they've returned with stories and insights to a culture few American's have seen first hand.

We have landed in Tehran

We have made it to Tehran-- checked into the hotel and soon we are off to explore. The traffic is insane. The news on the television is respectable. Our hotel is quite nice and our tour guide/translator has so far been very accomodating. More, more soonly.
