"Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and wright doing there is a field. 
i will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about ".
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

The Concept

Peace represents the content status, which is the aim of human beings towards achieving physiological peace.
Peace is the nature of creation, which all religions concurred upon, it is a neutral natural alignment, which makes a balance between construction and destruction
Paradise or the ideal situation in which we seek to achieve peace which varies from one person to the other. The artwork raises two contradicting, twin ideas, which are destruction and construction, yet it is the law of the creation understanding this case depends on the intuitive vision beyond the reality, which sets our intention and reaction.

Work description and the Concept

The installation consists of five three dimensional shapes that form letters of the word PEACE covered with grass.

Peace represents an Arabic lingual equivalent for a paradise that is related to planting and green as well as represents the inner peace for the human being.

Thus, the audience seeks the path that achieves the word (PEACE) and represents the state that humans aim for whether aware or not aware of the entire truth.

In that regard, the viewer can set a program of augmented reality on his cellular before entering the hall, and when applicating this program on the phone screen or laptop or display screens inside the hall, will see two options, one negative and one positive, then the viewer chooses one.

And observes the embodied in a different case the five letters switch to ten different scenes five positive and negative and deals The realistic interaction of the user by touching the screen for example, when trying to extinguish the fire with his hand on running away from fear when touching an animal.

This programmed application in the concept represents the knowledge of human being that affects his vision for the truth, and his vision in the formation of the peace that he wants under his own perspective.
