Who am I

The Jordanian-based artist Madiha Bee provided three poems from her forthcoming volume of poems "Lightworkers” and the German artist  Ecco Meineke created video-visualizations and musical settings related to them. Furthermore he produced a new video for which Madiha Bee created a poem.
 
1) In "The Book of Miraculous Signs" a carafe with water was chosen as story-teller.
The “unwritten” clarity of the water is colored with different fluids related to the narration: torch, rain, night, storm, silence, earth, wind,
organic plant growth. The music of the audio track is inspired by classical film music.

2) In “Children in the Dust Valley” animated Mikado sticks grow out of muddy earth
The music of the audio track mimics modern Middle Eastern pop.

3) “I Walked Across Because” shows the walking feet of a woman on different surfaces (rock, grass,
road, gravel, bank, stairs) and in different conditions (barefoot, sandals, hiking shoes, high heels) who ends up happily on a magic tree.

4) “Who am I” shows a female and a male face, both with facial expressions, which were added up at random. Madiha Bee created a poem relating to the video and recited it.
