Louvre Abu Dhabi (2021) 2021

In his continuous efforts to pursue new mediums and integrate Arabic calligraphy into all aspects of daily life, Diaa Allam has partnered with The Louvre Abu Dhabi and Michael Ang to display a digital projection of Arabic greetings on the walls, a unique art installation.
The art was projected with the Infl3ctor, a tool co-invented by Ang for live-projecting calligraphy onto urban spaces. Intending to push the boundaries of calligraphy, the Infl3ctor transforms the act of writing on paper and projects it onto the sides of buildings, creating ‘digital calligraffiti.’
