Sophia Al-Maria, The Litany, 2016

Images of Sophia Al-Maria, The Litany

  • A distorted image of an open-mouthed wolf is centered over an abstract background of blues and greens that appear almost like bacteria or mold growth.
  • A moody, clouded purple sky is criss-crossed in many directions with what appear to be flattened-out escalators. Atop this complex background is a vivid yellow cents sign.
  • An unmarked compact disc is centered in front of a digitally distorted, glitchy background of many colors.
  • A pixelated dark-skinned hand extends with fingers splayed. At the end of each finger is a prominent, vivid yellow brand logo.
