2021 رسائل مؤقتة Ricochet

Can we address public space via poetry? Nojoud Alsudairi’s Ricochet is a performative architectural installation that combines literature with light to convey conversations between Riyadh and its residents. The haikos presented on public building signages have been collected and deconstructed from letters written by the city’s residents. The multiple interventions include a pavilion that provides a social space that offers coffee in an attempt to inspire new physical and social arrangements within an existing urban context. The additional luminous signs are placed around the city, extending the artwork across an electric urban landscape.
