the fabric
 
Through this digital collage mini series, part of the Diaspora Blues & Other Hues series, Asma explores the fabric of her cultural identity using photographic self portraiture and literal fabrics from the respective countries she is "from". The Selfie is used here to represent the desire to control the viewers perception of the subject, or more specifically, the desire of the artist to be recognised as being part of each fabric of the the numerous lands that have influenced her cultural identity, upbringing and sense of belonging in the world.
