"Writing On The Walls"
June 24th, 2016… By Amir Dawud Akram, Summer 2016 My closest friend in high school, Denis Choi, and I left school after an event that we had barely paid attention to. I listened when the owner of a non-profit went up on stage to speak about getting water to children in Nigeria, but my focus strayed as teachers spoke about the necessity of putting your studies first. As we skipped school afterward, Denis had described that his experience in the event was similar. We headed to an independent art supply store in Harlem, since it was one of my favorite spots, and I had showed him the back area. We walked through the narrow corridor adorned with murals and plants, and spoke about our hopes for the first along while criticizing one another usual escapades. Denis and his girlfriend’s anniversary had just pasted, and I watch the commemorative jewelry he got shimmer in the summer sun.

Turn the Unforgettable Childhood Photos to Wall Art
Our parents love to take a picture of us when we were young that the childhood photos in our home are too many. They take a lot of photos from different events like birthdays, graduations, holidays, and daily moments. But all of these photos cannot be remembered at all times. It would be great to turn your favorite photos into portrait paintings.
Amazing Images In The Sky
When you look at the sky what do you look to find? Do you look at it for the beautiful blanket of blue surrounded by cotton cloud pillows? Does the sky cover your canvas creating a snapshot to last throughout time without a camera? Have you ever tried taking that perfect picture of the sky? The picture that really pops out above all the rest is the picture that really keeps your eyes locked in on what you are looking at. A picture that can really make a person's eyes shine is so hard to find these days. When you take a picture did you miss something in the picture that you caught? Go back over your picture that you have taken over the years. Take a very good long look to see if there is anything hidden inside the picture that you missed before. Recreate the story of the day that you took that picture. What did you find that was hidden that you did not see before?
The view that I am rather besotted with, an ever changing landscape continually showcasing the enormity of happenings that occur in a bustling inner city suburb, stretching to the mountains in the distant skyline. Perched on the upper floor of a high-rise building and blessed to be uninhibited by surrounding peers, the view is exceptionally sweeping and vast.
Time Design - A Life Spent
At the end of 2017 I was involved in research about time. "Lost hours" project was presented and abstract sculptural objects, questioning our perception of the world, initiated many deep conversations among various people. Continuing this work, it was decided to create products that could be commercialized and used as a helpful tool of reflection of one's decisions, thoughts, plans about the future and to improved concentration. The result was 3 time measuring objects, that help us bring forth the abstract thoughts about our perception of everyday life and think about these issues more effectively.
Mirrors of Memory
In this chapter we will look at several questions. What is the relationship between photography and memory? How can a still image/photograph produce or recall memories? What information do we get through photographs and through memories? How do memories transform through language and what does naming/defining memories do in terms of remembering and forgetting? How do the images/memories exist through projection?
Mirrors of Memory
In this section we will look at how our memories are transformed through speech and how they affect the process of remembering and forgetting. As an example I will use a very unique case, the work of Lindsay Seers, whose memory went through a very unusual process.
Mirrors of Memory
If I cannot recall memories of my mother, I experience a feeling of mourning. As if remembering is a responsibility even though I wonder how much of our memory is actually selective.
The calm before the storm
They say never ever mistake her silence for weakness, and to remember that sometimes the air stills before the onset of a hurricane.
