As Edward T.Hall said, “The relationship between man and the cultural dimension is one in which both man and his environment participate in molding each other” I was born in UAE, where I have experienced not only the rapid industrial and architectural growth of Dubai and the rest of the Emirates, but also the cultural complexities and dynamics that came as a result of the construction boom. I infuse these perspectives and bring them into my work that focuses on social innovation, sustainability and philanthropic practices. In 2008 I was honored to receive a scholarship from EDAAD Art and Culture Program. Soon I joined a BFA program at
Parsons the New School for Design In New York City. During my time at Parsons the New School for Design, I nurtured my passions and enriched my practice through multidisciplinary collaborations in the vibrant context of New York City with strong emphasis on environmental and architectural design.
Human interaction and the need for connection between beings was and is always an important aspect in the development and evolution of our species. The face is the initial body part that we encounter, interact and assess. We look, we gauge and we judge on the first glance creating our own initial impression of the person standing in front of us. The face is the element that retains in our memory long after the physical body has departed.
