SAD SUN (2020)

LED lights

site-specific intervention at Beirut Art Residency

SAD SUN is a play on proportions as it mimics a portable light therapy lamp on a large scale. These therapy lamps are prescribed to alleviate symptoms of S.A.D. - Seasonal Affective Disorder - a type of depression that occurs each year during the dark winter months particularly in the Northern hemisphere. Although Lebanon boasts to have around 300 sunny days a year, the weeks around the end of 2019 and start of 2020 felt particularly dark and dim, an impression that was intensified by the artist’s own encounter with depression.
