Cream Projects is the art practice and creative studio of Ana Nicolaescu and Sebastian Tiew.

Through artistic, curatorial and educational forms of engagement, their work explores computer-generated mechanics and imagery in the larger context of photographic and filmic histories, as a way of making visible how emerging technologies contour our ever-evolving world.

As a hybrid practice, they explore game engine tools both as means for creative production in the film, music and fashion industries, as well as subjects of contemporary critique, through moving image artworks and teaching across schools of art and architecture.

Air Conditioning
2022

Full colour inkjet print on matt fibre photo paper; 90 x 5475 cm.  
Commissioned by Sharjah Art Foundation.

In Collaboration with Lawrence Abu Hamdan
Curator: Omar Kholeif
Producer: Nabla Yahya

Placed on the four walls of Gallery 4 is a major new commission by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, titled Air Conditioning (2022). Linking the ocular and the auditory, Air Conditioning distills the artist’s concept of the ‘sonic image’ through a textured visual rendering of what he has dubbed, ‘atmospheric violence’.

The evolving graduated image maps the Israeli army’s sonic occupation of the Lebanese airspace over a 15-year period, from 2006 to the present. Following the 2006 July War between Israel and Lebanon, and the subsequent United Nation Security Council ‘resolution’ in August 2006, Israel commenced with a different form of warfare—an invisible, auditory conditioning of the Lebanese airspace, initially with F-35s, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones.
