Radio silence


The project aims to create an awareness of the surrounding environment in horsh beirut. it tackles two different thresholds within the site using a common playground game that is yet absent from the horsh: the seesaw. Radio silence questions the barrier that exists between the different users by placing a seesaw as a gate belt on a permanently locked door. Rana Haddad with Betina Abi Habib, Zeina Bekhazzi, Souha Boumatar, Mario El Khouri, Karen Madi.
