Bait Al Hurma (or: Bait Habib Shalawani), located in Sharjah's Heritage Area, is a small house attached to a large courtyard constantly awash in sunlight, sharp and flattening. Conversion is an installation that plays with this natural source of light by covering the courtyard with a metal structure made up of pivoting panels of coloured filters.
Often used for lighting film sets, these "colour correction" filters here create cinema without film: sunlight is converted into a fragmented range of colours - from a sodium vapour light to a golden sunset, from a dark cloud shadow to a twilight-hour glow - altering visitors' experience depending on the area in which they stand, the angle of the panels above them and the time of day. At every moment, new atmospheres are created.
