Hamra St. Beirut, Lebanon 2015

 

Of rusted steel and Arabic pottery, "Arabesque" is a light installation that illuminates a residential building entrance hall in Hamra st.

After cutting the pieces on a Laser cutter, I left them in the rain for 7 days till I got the rust I wanted.

The selected Arabic pottery verses talk about the neighbors and how they should treat each other with kindness.

 
أكرم الجار وراع حقه               إن عرفان الفتى الحق كرم
فقلت لهم كفوا الملام فإنما          بجيرانها تغلو الديار وترخص
