Stretching across two acrylic panels, crafted with LED tube lights, “LED FARSH” stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of Kurdish craftsmanship. The LED neon tubes are meticulously designed to conjure the enchanting glow of traditional neon signage.

Within this luminescent tapestry is a faithful tribute to the intricate patterns and motifs of Kurdish textiles. With a reverence for heritage, each panel meticulously reimagines the geometry and symbolism inherent in these ancestral rugs, drawing viewers into a world of timeless storytelling. The intricate interplay of light and shadow across these patterns creates a sense of depth and movement.

In its visual language, “LED FARSH” pays subtle homage to the neon signage that adorns bustling urban landscapes, invoking a sense of nostalgia while simultaneously projecting an almost futuristic, neo-city esthetic. This duality of tradition and innovation underscores the installation’s overarching theme, bridging the gap between the past and the future, and inviting viewers to witness the captivating convergence of heritage and modernity.
