Little bit of everything

Fatima Alalaiwat

People always change - everyday our experiences wean our paths, views and emotions - so how can we be expected to want just one thing?

My project tackles the temporality of relationships and consequently focuses on an institution that is still identified with the notion of 'forever': marriage. My aim is to adapt marital conventions by inventing a 'temporary marriage' scenario where we can experience a bit of everything within our current parameters.

Whether the source of our instability is a credit to consumer culture or an innate desire, the facts remain the same: it's how we are now and we should work with what we've got.
