Act of Faith

Oraib Toukan

16 TO 24 STUPID IMAGES I FEEL WHEN I AM MADE TO FEEL STUPID (Jordan, 2007)

16 to 24 Stupid Images I feel when I am made to feel stupid (Jordan, 2007). Oraib Toukan presents a fictive narrative of a policeman connected to and/or attempting to hear the thoughts of a Jordanian citizen through a stethoscope. The work mocks growing neo-fascist liberalist policies that attempt to assume control of dystopia in an Orwellian manner. These policies are themselves reactions to ideological divisions, represented by her placement of the two characters as polar opposites across the frame.
