Nora A.
United States
A recent graduate of University of Toledo's Center for Visual Arts New Media program, Nora delves into media of various formats, namely graphic design, digital photography and traditional fine arts, including contemporary methods of installation - to help send her message of identity and social construction to the world. She makes art that is a reflection of beauty: "God is Beautiful and He loves beauty".

Current Residence: the midwest
Favourite genre of music: qasa'id/nashid/anything Divine/folk/country/"world"
Operating System: mac os x
MP3 player of choice: ipod (when theyre not lost/stolen/not working)/itunes
Personal Quote: dreams without sleep are hallucinations
Ramadan came and went - Allahuma Baligna Ramadan - I visited DC and NY/NJ in Ramadan and Chicago last week, where I attended the Cusp Conference as a volunteer, a conference about "the design of everything". I took photos (and of Chicago too) and will have them up soon God willing. I was blessed to have met some very amazing people throughout my travels. Each time I go somewhere new, or even if I've been there before, it shows me how much I can learn, and bring back to my community to apply.

It made me think of my place in this world as an artist and as a designer and as a community member - who grew up in an active family and neighborhood, and I asked myself some very important quesitons:

What can I design and change for the good, the components of our community? Do I want to stay on an art and design diet in the strictest sense? What if I redefine what art/design mean to give attention to much-needed areas in our community?

I'm hungry. :)

Thanks for looking at the parchment 8D! :wave:

Do you think you could translate those two pages for me? If you don't mind, that is. I don't know if you can read the side notes penciled in or not well enough, but it doesn't hurt to ask, right?
