Heba Y. Amin Biography

Amin's projects are research-based investigations addressing themes related to urbanism and technology. They question modes of development and construction within a political context and look at contested territory through junctures, glitches and flawed memory. Using various media, Amin utilizes a sociopolitical approach to scrutinize the impact of imposed infrastructures on the human psyche.
