Mariam Hammoud
BA in Architecture, Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (current)

Having recently participated in an Experimental Architecture workshop at ALBA, Hammoud developed an interest in the numerous possibilities of spatiality in everyday objects. She draws inspiration from her surrounding environment and mundane elements. For her large-scale photographs,  Hammoud starts her exploration with two-dimensional abstract compositions and then experiments with different folding processes in search of uncanny landscapes. The resulting images evoke mystical and imaginary realms that aim to stimulate a unique visual experience for each viewer recalling substance-infused experiences. The goal is the interpretation of the space by the subject: a sensory experience that aims to lead to meditation and self-actualisation.  Along with the interchangeable materiality, the surfaces appear in slow motion whereas both colors and forms are activated.
