We enter the space through an ilm-al-raml tablet, a 7th-century Islamic method of divination, with the question "Where are the female prophets?" in "In the House of Fire with Avaz-e-Eshgh."

The divinator interprets figures placed in each house while casting the divination based on their main elements of fire, air, water, and earth. There are 16 houses in this divination. In this video series, we enter this divination's first, fifth, and ninth houses that are the houses of fire.

The narration is an interview with Avaz-e-Eshgh's character, who wishes to be anonymous and remain under her Facebook page name Avaz-e-Eshgh which translates in English as Songs of Love. 

We follow her story from her childhood memories, on how she experienced spiritualism, and how in her late 40's she came to create her Facebook page based on poetry and mysticism and how later on she joined mysticism seminars in Toronto after her immigration.

Each house is designed as a 3D space, inspired and filled with 3D scans of the interlocutor's objects such as books, notebooks, and her Facebook post and images and music.

At the end of each video, we will hear the interpretation of the house made by Avaz-e-Eshgh about the question of "Where are the female prophets."
