video on phone with arabic keyboard , video still embroidered on handkerchief, 2009
I choosed a “youtube” video, where an anonymous citizen becomes a “journalist” because it's a very interesting way to have news, in contrast with all the law of the main agency.
From this material I create an installations where the viewer can think about the situation and where the question of “not here but now” will be the first input. I show the video on the phone, object that every person has, as if the spectator filmed the situation.
I want to project the video and "re-sew it" in a way where the viewer becomes aware, conscience, of what he sees. He should know that what he sees really exists and should be dissuaded from the daily indifference. I embroidered the video still on old handkerchief, because of the sense of this object: collect the tears, dries and console.
