  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: My studio practice oscillates at the intersection of archiving and making, utilizing materials across the spectrum of printmaking, bookmaking, and textiles to investigate and discuss gendered labor and craft, Lebanese culinary traditions, folklore, (an)archival impulses, and affectionate documents. Making paper, gathering dyestuff, weaving textiles, sewing books, and printing etchings—the ways in which I work are inextricably linked to traditional processes and multi-sensory rituals.
