My artistic practice in general represents an investigation of readymade objects and leaving a minimal mark on them .The objects deployed in my work are usually day-to-day items from the Egyptian culture that carry social connotations. However, I present them as valuable objects and draw attention to their usefulness.
 
In this piece titled ‘341080,’ I am introducing a regular looking shovel; nevertheless the wooden handle is in fact of personal importance to myself. I used that same stick for self-defense from the thugs during the Egyptian revolution. Furthermore, I marked down the dates and statistics  (in Arabic) related to a historic national project from the Egyptian history. The title of the work represents the number of laborers that died working on this project.
