Untitled, Dimensions Variable,Video Projection 2005.

Born and raised in Cairo to an Egyptian father and an American mother, the duality of my background is reflected in today's sociopolitical climate, the perception of West versus East. I respond to my heritage by drawing from Egyptian culture, primarily through the use of the Arabic language, and locating it within Western context. I intend to create a dialogue between these two vastly different cultures, but also convey the often conflicting nature that exists both within myself and in the world.
