"YOU DON'T NEED TO UNDERSTAND, I'VE STOPPED UNDERSTANDING MYSELF" - This piece was made for our residency for  Jupiter Rising Festival @ Jupiter Artland in collaboration with TAAHLIAH. This work comes from a vulnerable place, it's our version of a panic attack using my emotionally charged video self portraits. My Arabic vocals in TAAHLIAH's production are sampled/altered from an old song and inspired by the poem above that I wrote. This piece highlights the stigma of mental health in Arabic communities. Six out of twenty Arab countries still remain without any mental health legislation. This stigma impacts every Arab country.
