The Ornament

video installation

Site: The Sunni Mosque

The video installation is a projection, one of which shows men in a mosque, the other shows women in a mosque. Both projections together will create an integral image of the interweaving and interaction of the architectural monument and the people who preserve the mosque in its historical purpose.

The exquisite ornament, this endlessly repeating pattern, helps to create a unique image of the famous Sunni Mosque of Vladikavkaz. The interaction of people and the mosque, the interweaving of live life into the life of an architectural monument, creates a complex pattern, which, like the ornament, is endlessly repeated in time.
