"What a long and perpetual journey! The six billion human beings that are floating and rotating in space share seats in this journey, but each is alone.

Do we really realize that we are fellow travelers in this journey? That is how another journey began more than a decade ago: that of two artists, us: Maha and Ibrahim. An installation on the pollution of mankind and environment, an exhibition on the common elements between mankind and the environment: earth, light, sound, plant and matter. And these are the elements that will compose our proposed installation. Pollution of humanity and the planet has become the thread that binds us to human beings, to the plant, and to our environment. Intellectuals talk about the dialogue of civilizations. For us, there is but one civilization, because there is but one planet."
