Variations on a Blue Star

Colored capet, dimensions variable, 2007

Variations on a Blue Star is a site-specific collaboration with Swiss artist Davide Cascio, involving an intervention inside an iconic building in Emad Eddine Street, Downtown Cairo. Variations combined Cascio’s interest in Islamic geometric patterns, with Aly’s fascination with anatomy. The project was commissioned by Pro Helvetia Cairo.
