We Inhabit the Accumulation of Time. 2018

Taking Darat al Funun’s façades as a starting point, this installation probes history and the passing of time.

Building blocks containing the bone debris of animals that lived 85 million years ago come to serve as a record of a life from a distant past.

Ammar Khammash is an artist, a painter and a photographer, and one of the most notable architects in Jordan, known especially for his extensive work in the field of historical preservation.
