Geometry, especially fractal geometry, plays an inevitable role in Hooman's works. When he was offered to design "Damavand" installation, he used a geometric pixelate pattern to represent the tallest and most iconic mountain in Iran, "Damavand". The mountain that is impossible to be recognized from Tehran anymore, because of thick layer of smog.

This piece was supposed to be the final result of a concept in which 5200 blue and white car toys were installed beside each other. The car toys had been painted by children of 6 polluted cities in Iran and had been gathered in the capital – the most polluted city - to mention the catastrophic air pollution made by the same actual cars, that causes hundreds of thousands of breath diseases and deaths every year. In fact, the regular rows of car toys in this installation, reminds us of the exact same picture that we are witnessed in the streets of Tehran every day.

The installation took place on the 19th of January 2014 and the site of this event had been chosen precisely, on the top of Milad Tower Complex hill, where people can have a clear panoramic view of Tehran and its air pollution.
