Oblivion leaves sediments too. On the surface of cities or in the depth of the sea. It may, in time become memory.

WHITE MIDDLE SEA (ongoing since 2010)

The Mediterranean sea (البحر الأبيض المتوسط - the White Middle Sea in arabic) is the geological and intangible heritage of all identity sedimentations. Open basin or cosmopolitan diversity graveyard to three continents, Africa, Asia and Europe.

I walk & walk in my natural habitat, its mountains, rivers, seasides, forests, cities, islands...
My eyes are those of an urban 'geologist', but my gaze is erratic: I wander its landscapes as if self-exiled.
Sedimentations of songs, stories, myths, migrations & longings leave a trace behind my path, some visible and some hidden. 
From shore to shore, layout and stratification, alienation, raw fiction, the poetics of light and humor, all play their part in this narrative.
