Shahid, a project space exhibition, is an interactive audiovisual installation composed of four printed digital illustrations displayed on a mirror spanning the width of the wall; these drawings reference poignant moments that have gone viral across social media, resulting in an unprecedented number of witnesses to this ongoing live tragedy.

Visitors' reflections in the mirror, among depictions of the victims, emphasise their role as witnesses. The experience is intensified by an image of Gaza’s destroyed cityscape reflected in the mirror. Furthermore, visitors are encouraged to take part in recording the names and ages of martyrs in the exhibition space.

Through this installation, Albaih stresses the individual’s role as a witness by showing visitors that they represent one more voice added to those speaking out for Palestine against biased global media outlets. This use of reflection – both literal and figurative – highlights the world’s complicity in this tragedy, which has exposed the prejudices and injustice of contemporary politics and international law.
