ٍSolo Exhibition, 2016
This exhibition deals with memory -
the human and the electronic memory - and how it affects us.
Are we able to delete it, edit it, or reshape it?
Does this mean we can control it?
In this exhibition I try to "program" my family members,
their old stories and their memories, despite the fact I
was never a part of these and I am unaware of many details.
This programming is done by drawing features and basic shapes
that stabilise the personal memory in the memory of the computer.
The outcome might be far from reality, but it nonetheless seeks
to save memory from loss.
This exhibition was produced by Khashabi Theatre
