    Abstract

    Research Question; How can a visual researcher address and respond to the personal impact of the current Syrian conflict and the inherent ideological battles within it without resorting to standard forms of war images?

    Inspired by poetry, this video combines Syrian folk music, Syrian poetry by Nizar Kabani (translated to English), and shots from London in winter-time. The shots that were taken from my car’s window show four minutes from rainy London while talking about the city of Damascus and the relationship between a displaced one far from their torn home town. In this way, it combines two contrasting worlds in one frame, rejoices them and celebrates both.
