Após a visita a esta exposição propôs-se a criação de um desdobrável/cartaz que apresentasse e divulgasse um dos objectos, à escolha, presentes na mesma.
O objecto escolhido - - consistia num diagrama, desenvolvido por Nahia Assan, que reproduzia, à escala, a cidade de Beirute, com as respectivas zonas destruídas assinaladas com buracos negros em contraste ao restante plano a branco. (ver imagem 5)
// The Atlas Group was a project undertaken by Walid Raad between 1989 and 2004 to research and document the contemporary history of Lebanon, with particular emphasis on the wars of 1975 to 1990. Raad found and produced audio, visual, and literary documents that shed light on this history.

After visiting this exposition I was asked to create a poster/fold that presented one of the exposition's object.
I chose "I was overcome with a momentary panic at the thought that they might be right", which consisted in a white diagram, made by Nahia Assan, in steel, representing Beirute city. The devastated areas appeared as black holes in the 3D diagram. (see image 5)
