Convergence is a collaboration with my colleague Hannan Abu Hussein. Invited by the Bereaved Families Forum for Peace, we were given each a ceramic bowl. Having worked together on several projects we decided to put our bowls together and create one bowl. Inside this ‘vessel’ we poured olive pits. I had used olive pits in previous works and we both related to this material from our own past. The bowls were bounded with cement. Cement being a material we frequently use in our respective works and in our common collaborative works. Like the cement that binds our work together, Convergence is the symbol of our strong mutual friendship and artistic collaboration.
