Squeezed Culture

Video sculpture 2007 / Personal Exhibition, El Gezira Art Center, Cairo, Egypt.

15 balloons trapped inside compressed metal construction in the middle of the room, 2 video screens in the opposing wall, 65 light bulbs (red–yellow–green-blue) distributed along the parameters of the room and changing from one color to the other every 30 sec.

Globalization left no space for identity to emerge, cultures are mingled and squeezed together to the extent that you don’t know where one ends and the other begins. We became a matrix repetition, a statistic, in the modern compressed metal urban civilization. Numb is the way we survive our daily life.
