Photos installation 16 mini polaroids in plexiglass boxes,
This piece is composed by a series of 16 mini polaroids , displayed in plexiglass boxes.
These have their front sides designed as a moucharabieh. The moucharabieh has preserved the intimacy of urban householders in Arabic architectures since the Middle Age. As old medina houses were packed and particularly close one to the other, this structure allowed people to see what was happening in the street without being seen. By adding the changing color led lights and the peepholes in the middle of the moucharabieh as to recall peep shows, the viewer is invited to experience a paradoxical de nition of the structure as he’s led to take a voyeur position to see the photographs through the holes.
The present series deals with Arab women body representations in the cyberspace. The polaroids have been taken from amateur videos of women -whom are most of the time dancing- that have been stollen and diffused on different websites created to criticize and diminish them.

Uphorias -2013 Multimedia installations.
Uphorias is a series of multimedia installations realized in collaboration with the graphic designer Alice Ito.
Inspired by images of cerebral electric activity and MRI studies, we have edited a composition of colored pixel like forms. They are projected together with a set of light effects from stroboscopes and lasers onto the tunnel, from the outside. This arrangement is often used in clubs to increase feelings of immersion in rave participants as well as to create visual effects sequenced to dance movements. Some ravers experience releases of large amounts of serotonin, which increase cere- bral activity and create a sensation of genuine, I quote, “self-discovery”.
