Dancing Edifices, 2024

Digital paintings on Japanese paper. 50x70.18 cm
“Dancing Edifices,” is a series of digital paintings in which I aim to evoke visually induced motion sickness through re-compositions of the spatial architecture of East Amman's Palestinian refugee camps. This type of motion sickness can occur when there is visual stimulation in the absence of physical movement. This endeavour reimagines the camp's architectural challenges, reshaping the physical space's movement and organisation and transcending the confines of mere bodily motion. These images open possibilities for questioning or reimagining embodied experiences within the camp's physical and social structure.
