Pakistan 2008

Photo Collage/Montage or ornaments of found and self-made images from all over the Middle East exploring the ideal romanticism or the idealization of the past. Thinking about my own history and growing up with all these myths & poems, I started to create a landscape, which is unreal and based on my own imaginings. I constructed from my childhood memories a hybrid space, a history that connects several countries in the region. The work takes as a reference the genre of miniature painting from the regions, while adding to it contemporary digital forms and creating an utopian space that transcends national borders.
