Outline

A virtual reality (VR) animation reaffirms the great influence Islamic culture has had on European culture over ten centuries. In context of current geopolitical events it is important to emphasize that we are a cultural community in which common traditions have been encroaching upon one another. The motifs for the images are inspired by the stalactite vaults of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, a melting point of the two cultures since the 8th century.
