Aya Atoui & Manal Elias. A House For A Home.
“A House For A Home” is a creative collaboration between a Lebanese photographer Aya Atoui, and his Syrian colleague Manal Elias. The pair decided to join forces last year and create video projections on various Dubai buildings. They took photos of their efforts which were recently on display at The Third Line gallery in Dubai.
Atoui and Elias‘ inspiration came from the fact they lived in a place with no sense of identity – geography and personality-wise. The idea of the projections was about capturing temporary moments, where the faceless buildings and street corners are activated and given the chance to re-invent themselves. Intriguing, haunting and absolutely beautifully executed.
