I work with tactile objects that then become interactive elements, creating a sense of concurrent realities, and of actions having forms.
The viewer’s movements and noise creates a physical forms throughout many of my installations.
The projected arabic text is audio activated and are poem excerpts by three Syrian poets written in exile.
“FAR AWAY: INSTALLATION” creates two actions simultaneously. When approached, a wall sized projection of volcanos in Nicaragua begin to disintegrate. Your movements in front of the volcano will also, at the same time, create multitudes of drawings and video imagery on the opposite side of the room. This imagery is inspired by the poem “The Drowned Horse” by Pablo Antonio Cuandra, which warned of imperialist threat. Gallery Page
