The Transients was a temporary public art installation realised during Art Dubai, 2007, made for a city where being in transience is a way of life. They come to Dubai from diverse places, to make their fortune, or to make a living. Bringing their memories and their suitcases, they ride on the tides of opportunity, using their knowledge and culture to stay afloat.

This installation consisted of painted stainless steel sculptures and wooden doors, windows and shutters recuperated from old Lebanese houses.
