SYRIA 2087

Drawing on the past, analyzing the present and speculating about the future, SYRIA 2087 is a reflection on development, decay, and everything in between. Syria’s tradition and culture are interwoven with the stories of Mars, emphasizing the analogy between them, and seeking common points of reference. SYRIA 2087 is a collection of objects – or rather stories translated into the language of an object – created as an attempt to preserve elements of culture in a new form that may be saved from oblivion.
