For her Bachelor of Fine Arts graduating project at Thompson Rivers University, Ruba Alshoshan explored the relationship between individuals and places by filming in her hometown Unaizah, Saudi Arabia. Void of people, Alshoshan’s imagery evokes the smells, sounds and emotional resonance of Unaizah and the surrounding desert as a way of exploring the social and intangible aspects of this particular place. Reflecting upon the experience of being away from home for long periods of time, the work considers how memories, experiences and lived events change a geographical location to place of significance.
