In the Saida series, Naifeh isolates the essential elements of important examples of Islamic architecture and transforms them into a series of wall and floor installations. The individual components in these radiating amalgamations of squares are crafted from painted canvas, plated metals, and limestone and granite. They are formatted to create cumulative star-like wholes, underscoring the compositions’ modular nature and the strict mathematical progression that defines the relationship of the parts to the whole.
