Amidst the current uncertain political and social climate, Qasimi’s urban nomad travels to the near future with a vision of hope within a utopian landscape.

This utopian future vision has been complimented by textiles and cinematic cult sci-fi imagery, allowing the traveller a discovery of his own place and purpose in the universe.
