Sound & Silence


By Soraya Syed


Sound & Silence is a new immersive and interactive show using digital and physical elements to juxtapose the materials and practice of Arabic calligraphy with a broader humanitarian relation to nature.


Soraya Syed is a classically trained calligrapher and artist dedicated to bringing the ancient art of Arabic calligraphy into the 21st century through film, dance, VR, and three-dimensional sculptures. Her pioneering work has been exhibited across Europe and the Middle East and is prized by collectors worldwide.
