#VEILED 03

This series of images stands for the constant change the city of Beirut is going through. Taking the coverings which are present all over town at construction sites as the symbol for the creation of the new and of the deconstruction of the old. Covering the old from the public eye and protecting the new from its rough environment.

#COEXIST  07 - 'or inventive ; New meets old.'

The series of photo manipulation depicts a scene from Beirut’s contrasting architecture fluctuating from one possibility to another. If urban design was a priority, what possibilities could take us steps away from passive coexistence? The artist uses oil painting on top of photographs, combining her knowledge within the field of architecture and traditional painting. The urban landscapes raise questions about individualism, urban and social awareness.
