Born in Chicago, USA in 1978, I received my B.A. in Studio Arts from Oberlin College. As an American with Jordanian hertigage, I moved to Amman in 2001 where I participated in a number of middle eastern and international exhibitions. In 2007, I moved to Berlin, Germany where I am currently based and continued to expand my photographic works into the fields of light art, installation and collaged works.
My work centers around light both in its medium as well as its subject matter. Using photography and photo-installation, I love to explore subjects such as man’s relationship to light by inserting the element of light onto natural landscapes and urban structures. In these works, light serves as a bridge between manmade barriers. In 2015, I was awarded a grant from the city of Berlin to create a site-specific light art installation exploring the relationship migrant communities in Berlin, and I continue to explore how light can be used as an integrative element in the face of social and political uncertainties.
