The Future Was Desert Part I
Year
2016
Duration
5 min 23 s

‘The Future was Desert Part’ I and ‘Part II’ are two videos that pursue the artist’s interest in exploring the visual and aural aesthetics of deep time and post-human time in the Gulf Region. Depicting the intricacy between fossil/fuel dependency, wealth, and environmental devastation, Al Maria creates a set of delirious, post-apocalyptic dreamscapes in which past and future appear as arbitrary temporal references within a complex geopolitical landscape.
