'X3': Uraiqat Architects

Designed by Uraiqat Architects, 'X3' initiates a conversation between the image of the user in its reflective surfaces and the backdrop of the urban buildings and surrounding environment.

This conversation is a dialogue between the self and the other that is born from the monologue between the I and the self, the object and image, the vision and perception. It invites a questioning of relationships and connections, and shakes the ground underneath the given notions of separations and disconnections. It blurs boundaries between spatial fields and erases borders of the tangible.

When faced with dancing fragments of self-image and transforming colors of skies and buildings, the user is challenged to play, move and perform the dance of questioning. A choreography that results in the deconstruction and reconstruction of identities, and a de-territorialization and reterritorialization of individual and collective space. ‘X3’ is a solid gone fluid, a structure gone rogue, a similarity gone different, a singularity gone multiple. It is an object disseminated through space, and society disseminated through movement.
