Now is the Time to Say Nothing photo

Using stunning video and immersive sound, this video installation follows the real story of Syrian artist Reem Karssli as she captures her daily experience of the Syrian conflict on camera. When she is contacted by a group of teenagers from the UK who want to see beyond the footage they’ve watched on their TVs, they work together to co-author an experience which attempts to connect a UK audience to the human story behind the news.
