Description
This series of posters represent the rapid transformation of the UAE culture into a hybrid of Emirati and western. A kandora (the UAE traditional costume), shirt, and jeans were scanned on a tabloid sized scanner, overlaid on top of each other, and re-presented by adding and removing layers of the Emirati and Western costumes. The 3 posters illustrate a cultural transition into Arabish. The Arabic text reads Arab, and the English text reads Western.

36 x 48 in.
