Tey-Al-Tool is my ongoing digital self-portrait project by creating virtual 3D worlds based on my experiences of working with the computer software and allow the audience to teleport and discover it. This project is more like a research or challenge for me to find digital aesthetic potentials of my daily real life and experiencing the meaning of characteristic creation as a media artist. Tey al-Tool is a similar word to Tay al-Arz, but the difference is on changing Arz (meaning the world and also width) to Tool (meaning length) in the Persian language. tey al-arz ("folding up of the earth" or "covering long distances in the twinkling of an eye") is the name for teleportation in the mystical form of Islamic religious and philosophical tradition. The concept has been expressed as "traversing the earth without moving"; some have termed it "moving by the earth being displaced under one's feet.
