Electricity

Electricity is the set of physical phenomena associated with the presence and flow of electric charge. Electricity gives a wide variety of well known effects, such as lightening, static electricity, electromagnetic induction and electric current.

This project was inspired by Ahmed Mater’s ‘Magnetism’, his idea was simple, and like his central element, ‘forcefully attractive’. “He gives a twist to a magnet and sets in motion tens of thousands of particles of iron, a multitude of tiny satellites that forms a single swirling nimbus.” It gives us more than simple simulacra of that Ancient House of God. The Ka’bah is a magnet and centrifuge: going away, going back home, is the last right of pilgrimage.” – Tim Mackintosh-Smith

The outcome for the electricity project was a set of photographs taken by myself. Each photograph stands as a representation of movement that are different movements of worship in various cultures and religions. The act of prayer is believed to help cleanse the mind, body and soul and therefore through different poses the body is able to rejuvenate and replenish itself.
