Last Seen is a site-specific work that comprises various doors that are slightly ajar. A light shines through their openings, evoking the tension of the unknown. For Alnasir, Riyadh is a city that never sleeps, as if the city has collected the sunlight that shines down on it all day behind her doors, and this accumulated light tries to escape to experience the Riyadh nights. The open doors are also a sign of life and are thought of optimistically as being ready to welcome visitors. Alnasir uses the installation as a way to embody the metaphor or “Nawarat Alriyadh”, an expression that is said to visitors when arriving to Riyadh that translates to “Riyadh is illuminated because of you”.
