Zellij, NN Contemporary Project Space
My project at NN Contemporary's project space explored themes of repetition and mirroring using the photographic image. The concept was inspired by the Zellij tile work I have become fascinated with during my numerous trips to Morocco.

Here are some of the outcomes from the project:
