The element of circumvolution is a key component in this project. My
Fascination with spherical | cylindrical elements – the planets and their position| we circumvallate around the Kaaba role of circles| encircling going around in circles.
The concept of this project is to emphasize on Emirati crafts and cultural heritage. By collaborating with craftsmen and artistry in the region, I’m able to preserve culture by using traditional techniques to produce a basic innovative Dome sphere, using fish traps “Gargour”.
As an artist, my purpose is to take an existing object or craft that I can further redesign and transform to give it a different purpose. I always like to link my work with the environment of the space given; I also like to imitate iconic objects in my own conceptualization. Space and time plays a strong roll in my work. I’m hoping to establish a platform to collaborate with our existing facilities and craftsmen. This dome-sphere structure is designed to explore new directions towards the future of contemporary hand made objects of artist collaborat- ing with artisans.
