Installation 2005 / Salon of Youth, Art Palace, Cairo Opera House, Egypt.
Ugliness took over everything in our life that the space can’t bare it any more. Value is lost and became very rare to find.
The installation was built in a space relatively small for the sphere, the sphere is 2.3 meters and the space was 4mx4m. So that gives you the feeling of its power. light is coming out from the cracks flickering and an air source from inside blowing to the outside so you feel the air pressure from the cracks, gives you the feeling that the sphere is about to explode.
The written text on the wall:
Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited, but imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution…….. Einstein 1929
