Performing and Archiving the Middle East Internet in a special interactive installation by digital artist VJ Um Amel. The installation will be followed by an evening of world music synchronized to a remix of Egyptian cinema and media emerging from across the Middle East. Drawn from the databases of the R-Shief initiative, this installation pays tribute to the vision of the people. VJ Um Amel will be joined by writer/editor/researcher Maytha Alhassen with readings from the new anthology Demanding Dignity: Young Voices from the Arab Revolutions.
