Nora Zeid Profile

Tashkeel presents 'Roots & Futures Artists’ Talks', a series of artists talks using this year’s theme ‘Celebrating Art, Celebrating Growth’ to redefine new media within the premise of interactivity as a mode of thinking, not just technology. Nora Zeid is a Dubai-based artist whose work blurs the lines of possibility and complicates the idea of the ‘author’. Nora will take us through her practice and exchange thoughts on notions of time, place and the spirit of collaboration. Dissecting the relationship between the physical and virtual, she will challenge the increasingly complex relationship between humans and their social context.
