Artist Statement
I prepared the video of “Sound of Sound” in Egypt to say that Humanity is like a raw material, like the colors, the sound and the inside space. You are looking for nothing. You are looking for you. Every movement, every sound and every scene is a part of you- in reality- if there is a reality in that life.

The video depicts what happened with us, all of us in that workshop.

When you grow your sprit up and go through the others, then go deep inside your emotions, and you own culture and dreams... that you looking for.

Humanity is a raw material like the colors and sound and the inside space. This is what makes you the challenger of yourself. If you are not be able to do something except staring at everything--come over the meditation to the real doing, express your self and know new things about yourself for the first time.

You, looking for nothing--what you are looking for is in you.

You do every thing while you move. You, looking in the truer, in the whole world around you, and discover that you have it in you and you have no idea about that.

Every movement, every sound, and every scene is a part of you -in reality- if there is reality in this life.

Now... After a year from that, Tavia and me devolved the idea:

A human being makes a box. Everyone looks to get inside and use the same box. We depend on that old box to measure the world around us. We need to make a new box. One that is open.
