Sand, Storm & Lawrence Tree


This video was shot in October, 2012 in Wadi Rum, Jordan. The name Rum most likely comes from an Aramaic root meaning ‘high’ or ‘elevated’.

In the West, Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence, known as Lawrence of Arabia who mysteriously died there. This work deals with loneliness, inner strength and Introspection. In the context of a busy terminal with hurrying passengers, the quiet ‘Zen’ radiating from this video invites the viewr to elevate to a higher state.

This video was projected in a deserted shop in the station.
