Nasser Al Salem – God is Alive, He Shall Not Die (2012)
Nasser Al Salem’s God Is Alive, He Shall Not Die is an exploration of the infinite, and humanity’s incapacity to conceive it. It reflects on God’s infinite nature, for the work is a reminder of the omnipresence and omnipotence of the creator, and the word repetition projected as an act of dhikr (remembrance). The word “Allah”, meaning God, is amplified in neon between a regular mirror and a one-way mirror that creates the infinity mirror effect, an optical illusion of a long tunnel of projection that recedes endlessly into an infinite distance.
