a public artwork at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
mirrored and translucent vinyl, neon, steel on glass
August 20, 2011 – August 31, 2013
A neon sign repeats the word in English and Arabic in a circular shape, as in a Sufi prayer, an incantation, a chant, a declaration. It shines on intricate mirrored vinyl patterns, interacting with the architecture, integrating with the structure, as it alters the identity of the building, while echoing the call for freedom across the globe.
