Shireen Taweel: Switching Codes

Through a new body of work, Shireen Taweel questioned the evolution of code-switching in a multilingual society, unpacking the ongoing Arab, French and English cultural practices in Lebanon, and its influence on the shared Lebanese cultural identity in Australia and Lebanon.

Switching Codes included a collection of copper sound sculptures and engraved copper tablets expressing the desire for new beginnings that unify the future evolution of language and culture.
