A site-specific exploration that focuses on the geography of Bahrain as an archipelago of 33 natural islands which has been going under massive changes since the oil discovery. Uniting cartography, and archival research, the project questions the urban fabric and aims to re-construct lost narratives, explore the notion of accessibility, colonization, and ecology and how this shape the social realities.
