Nora Adwan has created objects for her photographs, which appear to be stylized human forms. Lamp shades form glass heads
with round openings like straining open mouths. The small porcelain ears could complete the image, but the heads are missing
their eyes. Transparent tubes reference the torso. Dark hair, which should be outside, has grown inwards into the glass spheres,
where it is more suggested than really seen. Daylight breaks over the ornamental surface of the lamp glass's curves and corners.
The surface of the spheres is structured so that the inward gaze is limited causing the outer and inner to melt together.
The work can be understood as a reflection of the human senses, central to which is seeing, but a sight that can't penetrate
and understand what is seen. It leaves open questions because by its nature the human eye is limited in its faculties. A person
cannot understand the world through looking alone
