Director Statement

Growing up in Saudi Arabia, where artists used to be frequently overlooked and art is rarely appreciated, we had the undying urge to make a change. We studied graphic design and multimedia as a starter for our aim, which further increased our appreciation of art. It gave us a new perspective on how a still image can represent depth and meaning that is sometimes not viewed by the mere eye entirely, and we wanted to share that with the rest of the world. We created Sensing Beyond the Frame to promote a grasp of art value across times and cultures and to understand the contexts in which they were made. Kandinsky’s theories had the biggest influence on our project to almost perfectly mimic his point of view, as each synesthete has a different interpretations for sounds.
