Sharin Nashat’s Tooba

Posted on Posted in Blog, Reviews

I found this video installation to be very interesting. I really enjoyed the two different screens that were projected; it made an interesting connection between sight and sound sense the sound wasn’t necessarily directed toward one specific screen. I didn’t really understand it exactly, but considering it was based on something from the Qur’an makes sense that it was hard to comprehend for me considering I know essentially nothing from the Qur’an. I did enjoy it though, it was very thought provoking. It really made me think about the relation between man and nature and spiritual beliefs. Considering this piece made me think at all makes it good art in my book.
