In Arabic and Farsi it translates to:
1. place, location, position
2. status, dignity
In Arabic: noun of place from the verb كَانَ (kāna, “to be”).
Each being lives continuously through "becoming," a cycle of existence consolidated by a web of infinite connections between every person, every idea, and every location.
makānism explores the relationship between 'becoming' and our multi-layered spaces. Shari'ati: The Preoccupied Flâneur in Paris is the first project of makānism. Check back for more projects in the future.
