Al Manfa (Exile)
visual story telling through Arabic calligraphy
This piece deals with the emotional, personal and physical repercussions of exile through the manifestation of migration patterns mapped in graphic Arabic calligraphy. An installation of 25 frames timing one second from how much one loses from themselves as he/she embarks on this journey into the unknown. The outcome can be beautiful or devastating but as you walk though your experience grows progressively through the panels mirroring the human growth and transition through life.
