Having lived through the detrimental and ineffable experience of the Beirut port explosion, I still fail at translating the intensity of this experience; thus, as a tribute to the victims and to my dying city, this thesis is dedicated to find the most effective, and tangible way to help people understand the intensity and impact of this event through several visualizations of the Beirut port explosion.
These visualizations will be divided across 6 screens that aim at transporting the viewers to the event, and allowing them to experience it as accurately as possible, through survivor narratives and damage collection, in hopes of keeping the memory alive, and keeping the people reminded of what a corrupt government can cause.
I’m a Beirut raised, Berlin based multidisciplinary designer. A mix between a creative visionary and a strategic creator.
Probably in a teaching role.
Multi-layered and interpretive.
Having to "re-live" the Beirut Port Explosion.
I'm inspired by my surroundings, and random conversations.
I always ask "why?". Why am i designing this? Why is it important? Why would people use it?
Feed your curiosity, ask questions, and search for answers.
I learned to take and question design decisions differently.
I wanted to focus on translating experiences and narrations in design.
Probably the commute.
