International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Artist and researcher Jawa El Khash applies technology to blur the lines between visible and invisible, reality and simulation, fact and fiction. She expresses these notions through virtual reality, holography and painting. By building her own realities through software programs, the technologist wishes to expand the spectator's own worldview, an onlook made to be infinite and ephemeral. Toggling between present and past is key in El Khash's use of holography, all while playing with the concepts of time, space and memory. She builds fully immersive experiences that lead viewers towards introspection. El Khash has exhibited her work in Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver and Istanbul, and was mentored by Morehshin Allahyari at the Art Gallery of York University in 2020.
