Pieces of Home in Za'atari
Pieces of Home in Za'atari
Relief print collage
44x33
2016

The people that make Syria more than an abstract notion of place and nation are now spread across continents and cultures, carrying pieces of their former home. The piece is comprised of many small rectangles procured from multiple relief prints. The tents occur in orderly lines, but the humanity within is cramped and displaced. Upon close inspection, most ordered systems reveal complexity, inefficiency, and chaos.
