In march, 2012, more than 90 Iraqi students with ‘emo’ appearances were stoned to death by religious extremists in Baghdad. In collaboration with Adel Abidin, an international artist from Iraq, LOCI was commissioned to develop and build the concept.Abidin took this single event and transformed it into a tangible experience that examines death, the soul’s quest for liberation and the tragic price paid in the name of freedom. Symphony is homage to these young people.
