Conceptual Projects


This work attempts to realize the implications of The Bound Project, an ongoing concept that uses the ritual of “binding” and “unbinding” to address the cycles of oppression and freedom that result from cultural, religious, and political developments. In an attempt to emphasize the power of the symbol, the wrapping material that Hassan designed for The Bound Project is silk-screened with Arabic calligraphy-style writing that has no actual meaning.  While it appears to be Quranic calligraphy, it is important to note that there are no actual Arabic words printed on the cloth.
