Laminated Digital print, algorithm, surat Al-Fatiha, 200cm × 80cm, 2015.
Al Fatiha, is a laminated digital print. It reveals a panoramic landscape made of stipples which, once we come closer, unveils thousands of Arabic letters.
This work is a combinatorial writing of the letters forming Surat Al-Fatiha. The latter result is achieved thanks to a computer program developed and specifically conceived for this purpose.
This piece aims at transcending the text of a Surat through applying an extreme abstraction. The process used takes this material to the limits of the language and of the intelligible, to the very frontiers of what can be named.
