A constant element of Hadieh Shafie's work has been the significance of process, repetition and time. In works comprised of paper scrolls, individual strips of paper are marked with hand-written and printed Farsi text. Each strip is then tightly rolled to create a core, around which successive strips are added. During the repetitive process of adding paper strips to create individual rolls, text and symbols are sometimes revealed and often hidden within the concentric rings of the finished object.
