Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha creates immersive installations by manipulating light. In «All the Flowers Are for Me (Red)», light emanates from the center of a laser-cut steel cube, enveloping the gallery in intricate shadows that ripple and change as you walk through the space. Inspired by Islamic architectural forms and referencing her experience as a diaspora artist, the geometric and floral patterns cast upon the walls, floor, and ceiling create a sense of belonging through shared experience.
