Breached Silence


Breached Silence

Video installation 2011 / F+F Schule für Kunst und Mediendesign, Zurich, Switzerland, March 2011

Silence was a deafening sound, you could feel it in the eyes of everyone you pass by in the streets of Egypt, or in work or even at home. It was like a huge wall getting thicker and thicker everyday and light of hope was getting darker, but suddenly out of nowhere light breaks through without warning and Silence was breached.

it was thought the Egyptians would never speak up but they was wrong. We know how to speak up and very loud too. We made it clear to the whole world that we are not yielding to injustice anymore.

We paid a great price to earn our pride and this work is tribute to those who shed their blood for our freedom.

“Breached silence” is a video installation project which exposes the intensity of the Egyptian revolution and it is impact.
