ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

My work focuses on characterizing items that relate to my ingrained identity as a Palestinian-American. These items are sources of hidden stories of the past, and their prominence in daily life allows them to transcend time and conflicts to define generations of a forgotten culture. I’m interested in bringing forth these products, which can be harmonized into new meanings from old creations.
