Saad Malik

I have been always interested in power as the main agent of spatial organisation - which then influences our everyday life, from external to internal and vice versa. So what I care about most is the self-empowerment to create, negotiate and maintain a nourishing spatial order of power - starting from the self and inviting others to follow. In such an environment we can grow with each other, not despite each other. And this is what makes us actually human I believe: To be human to each other.
