These satellite dish works are studies for a yet to be conceived sculptural installation inspired by events of the so called Arab Spring - specifically the protests that led to the ouster of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak in 2011. Satellite Dishes are the predominant receptor of information/television throughout the Middle East- and they were also employed as shields during clashes with the authorities in public protests and uprisings, especially in Cairo's Tahir Square. In this light, they represent a poignant symbol for political and social change.
