Social Research

In several works, I have used writings that are sourced from a community archive I have compiled. Over the years, I have designed interactions that allow me to collect people’s short personal writings about topics I am interested in: migration, heartbreak, resilience, and political upheavals. I find my own story in between others’ stories; and I collage these words together, in Arabic and English, in some of my installations.

The roots of this work are in my background as a teaching artist and my founding of RASMI, an arts program to empower Arab and Muslim youth in Brooklyn through creative self-expression.
