Experiencing Interruptions?

Song of Syria

Song of Syria offers an aesthetic and political reflection on the armed conflict taking place in Syria since 2013. Made from recordings Air strikes posted on Youtube , this installation attempts to offer a reflection on the media censorship carried out by the regime of Bashar al-Assad and illegibility of the conflict. The war and its dead are invisible here to see given hollow while being embodied in the camera movements and the hovering threat of a helicopter flight .
