Noor Riyadh – The Eleventh View of Time

An Artistic Exploration of Narratives & Dimensions.

Basmah Felemban’s piece ‘The Eleventh View of Time’ aims to build an imaginative world, looking beyond the human to offer a different perspective on the city. Craft worked on the site adaptation, prototyping, fabrication, installation, and light projection.

The surreal and thought-provoking narratives are based on the Indonesian author Ikhda Ayuning Maharsi Degoul’s collection of poems, “The Gold Fish”, that traces a journey of self-awareness and rebirth from the limited world of a fishbowl to a freedom that was difficult to achieve. This latest work is a continuation of Felemban’s recent investigations into the river fish that inhabit different valleys in Riyadh, raising questions about the origin and immigration story of these particular citizens of Riyadh, as well as general questions about our concept of time and humanity’s relation to the world.
