Sabulation (AL Azif) is created from video and sound recordings of the ‘Singing Sands’ in the deserts of Oman, one of the few places in the world where the shifting sand dunes emit deep tones. The sounds were captured using vibration sensors buried inside the dunes. The video is projected on a large screen in a dark room accompanied by sound from the two subwoofers and the four speakers placed in a corner of the room.
