I dedicated this section of my website to function as a virtual studio for testing and experimenting with some of my current ongoing researches.
This page here is an open-end to my research about intimacy...
What you are experiencing now on this page is a collage of different attempts in progress.
- The soundtrack is the first track of my upcoming EP "tabbing windows". A spoken words/eerie poems EP on intimacy in the digital sphere.
- The interactive animated visuals are part of a web-based project also in progress.
Over the last 16 months, I have been looking into the implication of technology on our perception of feelings, trying to detect the constantly morphing definition of intimacy in a time where feelings are heavily commodified through technological means, gadgets, devices, and mobile apps.
The research and its different attempts do not just look into the perceptual shift of the meaning of intimacy between individuals/users but also attempt to decode the institutional presence shadowing the intimate processes carried out by the individuals/users in the cloud, through its servers and data hubs.
Please, join me on the 16th of February, 5 pm Cairo time/6 pm Berlin time, where I will have an artist talk as a concluding part of my current online residency with the Goethe-institute Kairo. I will be talking more in-depth about this research and my artistic practice at large.
