The Idea

  • slideshow_large

Owen 'Alik Shahadah

Synopsis

The Idea is a comical satire of modern society and our inability to listen. It is also a study of contemporary society's insensitivity towards the expression of new ideas and not being willing to give them the appropriate space to grow and form. Rather than asking the right questions, crowding them out with trivial concerns and noisy vacuous statements.

Although, in this instance, we drew from archetypal figures of a particular group of people, the message is universal and equally applies to all groups and denominations.
