The 56th edition of La Biennale di Venezia 2015
my partispation at the Egyptian Pavilion with the project
The word PEACE is a mosaic of 5 letters built in a space of 19 meters wide, 8 meters deep and 2.5 meters high. Walking through this mosaic of letters, one cannot see the word PEACE without looking from high above. The visitor will walk through this mosaic of letters without really recognizing the whole scene of the word PEACE that he is moving through. Just like everyday life, one is so closely engaged in his particular problem that he/she does not see the “bigger picture”. Similar to mosaic art in general, one can only see the beauty of the mosaic art when seen from afar. This art installation represents a conceptual contemporary mosaic setting using material such as grass, wood and interactive augmented reality to convey the message of PEACE.

"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and wright doing there is a field. 
i will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about ".
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
