I started the work after news of the Paris shootings last year. It seemed easy to just feel angry and outraged. I wanted to know how we had ended up in this situation, with people unable to go to a music concert without being gunned down. Our fears and realities now echoing those in Syria, Egypt, Libya and many other places. I wanted to show that where we are is not one event but a series of events in Middle Eastern contemporary history. Really the work is a sketchbook page, a page of workings and examining's. I’m trying to make sense of it myself.
