  1. 6th photo: any idea what the word at the end of the ‘hallway’ means?

  2. The word at the end of the hallway is “khatt”
    See: http://universes-in-universe.org/eng/nafas/articles/2008/khatt_foundation

    “The word khatt not only refers to writing, script, lettering, calligraphy, and typographic style. It also means line, as in a trace on a page… a line of thinking… a direction…”

    Our good friend Dina (expert on Arabic typography and professor at AUD) keyed me into the meaning. Thanks Dina!

  3. That’s a really beautiful definition — not just the writing, but also the ideas contained therein. Thanks!
