Yara Mekawei

Composer, Egypt

A prolific artist and scholar, Yara Mekawei‘s sonic bricolages draw inspiration from the flow of urban centers and the infrastructure of cities. Interested in the philosophy of architecture, history, and literature, Mekawei uses an optical transfer from musical conversation and transfers sound waves to visual forms. Her philosophy of composition is shaped by sophisticated practices that convey messages of conceptual dimension to the public. Mekawei follows a research-based practice connecting the philosophy of the past to the technology of the present. She follows her projects through a research point of uniting between work and the other, her works shows an intangible aspect of her identity, and being feminine in an East African society.
