Nour Sokhon is an interdisciplinary artist based in Lebanon. Nour’s main objective is to transport the audience into an immersive and encompassing environment. Nour believes that interactivity is the key to engaging the left and right hemispheres of the brain; for that reason, she continually investigates the potential of a spatiotemporal experience within a creative setting. Her involvement in multiple creative disciplines such as performance, film, installation and sonic composition allows her to accumulate quantitative data and explore the many methods that can conclusively address the subject/project. Her ongoing research has led her to conclude that sound is one of the most powerful mediums which can be used to transport the viewers into a realm of abstractness, due to the fact that it is time-based and it is not restricted by a visual frame. The fluid nature of sound, its intense power in triggering emotions and proven role in memory recollection, such as treating people with Alzheimers has pushed her to use sound as a tool in her creative process. Hence, she seeks to combine sound with different forms and media according to her modes of inspiration, often triggered by her surrounding environment. Nour's work has been presented widely in Lebanon (including Sursock Museum) and abroad (Theater Neumarkt, Zurich, SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin, Kampnagel, Hamburg). (www.noursokhon.com)
