ARTWORK
This artwork is a kind of subtle allusion to the rise of the use of symbols, especially Quran verses that are imposed as a single interpretation for unilateral interests. Ease of access in finding information is so convenient these days. In this digital age any question can be answered as easily as turning the palm of the hand. This is a blessing but at the same time a toxic situation. If a strong desire to search for information is not matched by a maturity of the mind and emotions, this abundance of information will not enhance openminded-ness but on the contrary.
