” A man holds a placard of Al SISI Egypt’s military commander and faces a screen playing footage identical to the man?s surroundings, almost. On the screen, the sign he?s holding turns into a photo of the Isolated President Mohamed Morsi. The other signs featuring non-Islamist leaders, Slogans or / and messages appear as either Islamist politicians, members, slogans or says of the #Muslim_Brotherhood regime. Chants supporting Former President #Mohamed_Morsi and his regime echo through that #Installation. This project inspired by the nation?s media and #political scenes confusion in #Egypt and critically reflects on the history of #performance and #interactive art and the politics of #new_media_art in fragile #post_revolutionary Egypt.”
