Air Conditioning (2022)

CGI visualisation by Cream Projects
An artwork by Lawrence Abu Hamdan
Exhibited at the Sharjah Art Foundation

An evolving CGI image that maps the Israeli army‘s sonic occupation of the Lebanese airspace over a 15-year period, from 2006 to the present. Linking the ocular and the auditory, Air Conditioning distills Abu Hamdan’s concept of the ‘sonic image’ through a textured visual rendering of what he has dubbed, ‘atmospheric violence’.
