BELOVED / 2009 / Shatana / Jordan / in collaboration with Youmna Chlala

The Beloved is an archive and a search. This publication began as a way to localize the stories of the people in the village of Shatana through their connection to personal objects. How does maintain the valuable/value in a rapidly changing place? Along the way, we found that people, tools, images stretch across time from seven days to seventy years and that revealing the beloved requires the intimacy of extended conversations over many cups of tea.
