In Sound of Angles (2014), Kazem employs the same technique to scratch a series of shapes on paper that refer to the angles created when opening doors. Kazem draws an analogy between the uncalculated angles of the opening of doors and the defining moment in his series, when he traces a line with a cutter without measurement. This installation of Sound of Angles includes a door that bears the signs of human hands pushing through it over time in the form of abrasions and missing flecks of paint.
This project was part of Sharjah Biennial 12
