On Parade


On Parade

The rocks of AlUla and the shifting flux of its sands are the theater for thousands of life forms hidden within its crevices, recesses and pinnacles. They belong to the vast ancient time of the landscape and the time of accumulated moments; they are visible only to those who know the secrets of the desert.

Here, in fantastical procession, nature’s creatures are on parade, coming together to show off the forms and shapes of their diversity. Inspired by the flora and fauna of the Arabian desert, their linearity echoes time and the movement of the caravan people. They have come to a standstill for us, making themselves momentarily visible as they enter the fields of our perception.
