Medium: installation

Description: this work marks a further step in my research about confinement. I have stripped this piece of all other constraints whether opacity, or structural confinement. However, I am left with 2 more restraints, the insecurity revealed in the written thought and the rigidness of the material. The work comprises etched text on Plexiglas filled with paint. The text is in Arabic and is etched on both faces of the Plexiglas. The Plexiglas is then shattered and suspended from the ceiling with metal wires. This work comprises 12 pieces of shattered Plexiglas
