In the Search for Home

Professor Riem Ibrahim

An archive that aims to collect objects that individuals identify as reminders of “home” to shed light on the different identities in the UAE. As immigrants, we tend to collect and store certain items to feel closer to home. The archive serves as a study of human identity, culture, and societal expectations. People tend to associate themselves with 'home' in many different forms. In addition to analyzing the patterns of similarities and differences to understand them better, this is an intriguing insight into the notion of identity within a globalized setting.
