I am a Palestinian Lebanese visual designer in theater, film, animation, and installations, and is based between Dubai, UAE, and NYC, USA. I'm on a constant quest for story-centered collaborations, which explore narratives while showcasing process. I create worlds with one eye shut and an index finger as my wand. While studying for my MFA in design from NYU/Tisch, I enjoyed controlling traffic, mapping the skies, imagining the birds and inhabitants of the world in plays, dances, operas, and films. I have explored puppetry and stop-motion animation in the Gulf, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and South America. My work is about freezing moments, replaying them, changing scenarios, playing out consequences, and then repeating. Impossible things happen in an instant; objects vanish, come to life, and are set off again. In motion.
I am an imagineer with a great love and a great weakness: soap bubbles.
