I’m a photographer and digital media artist working at the intersection of architecture, archives, technology, and politics. In my works, I use 3D modeling, mapping, internet-based tools, and more to examine archival photographic materials and their relations to geographies of conflict and displacement, especially in Palestine. My practice is engaged with issues of social justice, human rights, and anti-colonialism, and their application in art and media.

Landscape in Continuum
The research subject in Landscape in Continuum is a portion of land that sits between Isawiya and Abu Tor in East Jerusalem; unappropriated territory at the heart of a controversy between official authorities that seek to turn it into a national park - the Jerusalem Municipality, the Nature and Parks Authority, the Ministry of Interior, and the Ministry of Environmental Protection - and activists, politicians, urban planners, and residents of the area who wish to prevent this plan from being realized. They claim that the alleged environmental justification for the 'Mount Scopus National Park' project in fact hinges on political agendas, which aim to limit the spreading of the surrounding Palestinian neighborhoods.
