In the Fall of 2008 I embarked on a journey to find out how Iraqis coming to the US during the ongoing US invasion were faring in their transitions. This project takes you from takeoff to landing, the story of their travels, realizations and attempts at acclimation in the very country that caused their exile. This is a sound and video installation. The video is floor projected and the sound is independantly looping to allow for unexpected synchronicities. Adjacent to the installation room is a small community space with tea, snacks and books related to Arab Americans, Iraq and the war. There is a large map of the middle east on one wall.
