the first installation [click on any image below to enlarge] is an acrostic of the poem i hate to love like other people by syrian poet nizar qabbani. the cut-out letters that form the acrostic are glued onto the windows of the main patio. they're acrylic sheets that let the light come through but filter the sun. the sun comes in only through the letter thus writing it on the floor.
