DESIGNED OPPRESSION: SPACE OF RESISTANCE IN PALESTINE
The block is a design research project exploring and mapping out the design constructions ranging from the actual material to the shape it takes changing the Palestinian landscape. As a way to understand the physical boundaries, I attempt to showcase some of the realities that The indigenous population lives under. Through this work, I navigate various layers of oppressions manifested in the Block. The Block is a barricade, a tunnel gate, a barbed wire, it is the overpopulated concentration of Palestinians completely surrounded by military and walls. People living under these conditions are forced to cope with and more importantly, stand resilient against the day-to-day incursion on humanity, normality, and peace.
