Thqafh Al Thalth (The Third Culture)
This body of work is inspired by the experience of growing up as an expatriate in a country approximately 3671 miles from 'home'. For this artist, 'home' was a country where it rained a lot, she know nobody and returned to only in the summer. It was only recently that she came upon the term, 'third culture kid,' and was able to begin to attribute her experiences to something. The term 'third culture kid' refers to children who "accompany their parents into a different society,"1 The images are focused on the coastline of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Co.Down, Ireland. The images are embellished with hand stitched text allowing the artist to interact with the physicality of the photograph.
