In the Shadow of the Pyramids by Laura El-Tantawy

A fellow student posted a link in our Facebook group to this video of Laura El-Tantawy’s In the Shadow of the Pyramids. 

My recent reading has focused on the connection between memory and photography and I’ve also been thinking increasingly about the shared indexicality of photography and sound recordings (including music). El-Tantawy’s work expresses the power of the combining the two media wonderfully.
