Models of Humanity
Mixed media installation, 2017
Raif Badawi, who founded an online forum for political and social debate, called “Saudi Arabian Liberals”, was arrested on 17 June 2012. But after all years of appealing to humanity with no result, what could we come up with to raise aware- ness and propagate change?
One of the most probable ways to help this situation was to provoke international attention to problematics of Freedom of Expression in SA by exposing international companies having business relationship with SA. By involving people in the act of physically moving information about the relatioon between SA and the international companies and by creation of a big-scale monumental installation the work creates a material body for the so-called “crimes” that online activists in Saudi committed. Physical is always more relatable for hu- man than virtual.
