The Moore Collection- medical, science, and archaeological departments Portfolio

This unique photographic compilation, taken from long-forgotten glass plates, depicts scenes from Lebanon, Syria, and AUB in the late nineteenth and very early twentieth centuries, when Dr. Franklin T. Moore taught at the Syrian Protestant College (now the American University of Beirut). Moore's camera captured the seemingly vast size of the new campus, the undeveloped northeastern mountains, and an unpaved Bliss Street, in sharp contrast to the growth and changes that have taken place since then.

This is the Time. This is the Record of the Time

This Is the Time. This Is the Record of the Time is a hybrid anthology of commissioned art and written works on the subject of capturing time and temporality, representing a collaboration between the American University of Beirut Art Galleries and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. ​There is a common perception that time is accelerating. The need to pause, slow down, and regain ground has become a necessity, to grasp our “Runaway World," as Anthony Giddens aptly terms it. Critically evaluating this precious commodity, time, with thoughts grounded philosophically, historically, and in terms of media theory allows for a more in-depth discussion on the perception of time and how the act of recording it affects its perception and treatment. The experience of time is mediated by the technologies that record it. Quoting the introduction, “Thinking about Time: Proposition" by one of the editors, Angela Harutyunyan (p. 23), the book proposes “that to think time and to experience the time of thinking makes oneself out of joint with time or, rather, with the notions of temporality that dominate our epoch."

بيروت... رياق- رحلة مصوّرة لمحطّات السكّة الحديديّة

"بدأت فكرة الرحلة من نقطة انطلاق شخصيّة أساسها استعادة تجربة نزهة في القطار القديم الذي كان ينطلق من محطّة الحجاز في وسط دمشق الى محطّته النهائيّة في "وادي سرغايا" و"عين حور" بعد مدينة "الزبداني" جنوب شرق العاصمة السوريّة.وفي اطار مقرّر تعليمي تقدّمت به عن الشريط المصوّر البديل، في قسم الهندسة والتصميم لدى الجامعة الأميركيّة في بيروت، كان يمكن لهذه الرحلة أن تقدّم مجموعة تجارب فرديّة للطلّاب المشاركين فيها ذهنيّاّ وجسديّاً، وتغني النتاج الغرافيكي الذي يصدر عنها: رحلة تفتح مساحات النقاشات لما تتضمّنه من سرد قصصيّ لوقائع مُعاشة بكل التفاصيل والأحاسيس: اغناء التجربة البصريّة أمام المدى الريفي ومناظره، اكتشاف القطار القديم بمقطوراته ومقاعده الخشبيّة وزخرفاته الشعبيّة، رائحة الأشجار وعبق دخانه، تنوّع محطّاته وسككه، والأهمّ معايشة أهله ورواياتهم." ​
