"Ash rises silence falls", 2012,  leaves : all ill. ; 23,5x32cm.
Limited edition of 10 signed and numbered books
part of Al Mutanabbi Street Project
The minutes of stillness and disbelief that follow the explosion are embodied into the quote by Kemal Bakarsic who witnessed the bombing of Sarajevo library.
Burning ash from the books carries fragments of pages into the sky. Like a cluster of birds they form shapes. Or possibly a pattern that I saw as a frontispiece of Mamluk Koran (AD1338 / AH738).
