How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
All the time
What do you want people to know most about you?
I am a performance and interdisciplinary artist.
I have always been fascinated with in-between states. I think that is partly my personality and partly because I’m Arab American: in the culture but not of it… The tension between austere formality and the vulgar energy of American pop idioms characterizes the work I make in different media. Whether that is a result of the hybrid element of my identity I could not say, which I suppose is the unique condition of second generation Americans. But in my work I tend to explore related themes of particular significance to Arabs in post 9/11 America: shame and exposure, surveillance, authority, and voyeurism.
