This poster was created during a poster design workshop held by
poster design legend, Prof. Bernard Stein of Ott+Stein, in collaboration
with 100 Best Arabic Posters. The theme of the third round of the
workshop was "I am a Product", which was open to interpretation by
In light of man and woman being manufactured within the
same product line, the poster questions gender privilege within
Quraanic context through giving a visual euphemism of a
verse from the Quraan discussing the value of an individual's
statements of witness depending on their gender.
The poster tries to pose an understanding of the verse through
comparing it through a visual metaphor to how vision happens:
When the eye is presented with the object (man), it translates it
into a skewed flipped image (woman - and in this case, the image
equivalent of the man is two women), and only in the presence of the
brain can the skewed image stand in its original position that was
distorted by the eye and hold its same visual value.
The poster was exhibited in Kodak Passage with the rest of the participants'
contributions to each theme provided by Prof. Stein, as well as included in
a publication showcasing and exhibiting the concepts of each poster created.
