Arty-Fact: "From a shockingly inappropriate young age, I was exposed to the idea of torture. I can confidently say that for a child with my vivid imagination it was, and remains to be my single scariest haunting thought until this day.
"Overhearing adults recalling stories of torture in the Arab world from the 60s, 70s and, 80s, and hearing and seeing torture scenes in films like "Kitkat" (which sadly remains one of my absolute favourite movies), I suffered high anxiety as a child of 7 or 8 years old from these thoughts. So, when the Arab Spring unleashed a wave of torture and abuse as authoritarian regimes clamped down to cling to power, that fear once again surfaced and, I became obsessed with the idea of torture.
"While alone in my studio, I listened to online radio reporting the events from the Middle East. I would make notes and research techniques such as "The Flying Carpet" and "The German Chair" - techniques used against the brave protestors in a renewed absolute horror." ~ Rasha Eleyan
