The Kingdom

This interactive series explores the dystopian society of Saudi Arabia where I was born and spent the first 10 years of my life. 

Images and videos have been collected over the past 3 years from my personal and family collection. The timeline takes us through my parents wedding in Pakistan after which they immediately move to The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The gulf war, memory and third culture assimilation are the major themes of this body of work. 

The works consist of multichannel audio and large interactive portraits that trigger via conductive sensors. Visuals are processed in openframeworks and processing with a variety of images, video stills and gifs.
