Now Is The Time To Say Nothing, an interactive video installation exploring the role of screens in observing global conflict. The show is a provocation against armchair passivity.
Using video and immersive sound, it follows the real story of Syrian artist Reem Karssli as she captures her daily experience of the Syrian conflict on camera. We see what emerges when she is contacted by a group of teenagers from the UK who want to see beyond the footage they’ve watched on their TVs. Together they co-author an experience which attempts to connect a UK audience to the human story behind the news.
