Alia Alharmi


Electronic Language International Festival



Through working with digital media and animated frameworks, Alia Alharmi urges the reconsideration of human conceptions of time and space. She hopes to convey the uncontrollable progression of time by showing a single droplet of water that continuously falls and rises – always reappearing into the water below, or above. The artist invites the audience to ponder the origins of this water cycle: When did it begin? How long will it run for? Will it ever end? Like grains of sand in an hourglass, the droplet represents the tangible, incremental passing of time.
