Maya Chami, practitioner in graphic design and digital arts.

Born in Beirut in 1981, I obtained a bachelor of science in graphic design from the Lebanese American University. In 2006 I was selected to participate in the UNESCO online masters module on art, design and technology. In 2011 I completed a masters degree in digital arts at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London. I work in graphic design and digital arts on both commissioned and personal projects and have participated in several design and digital arts events.

My live audio-visual work includes: “Transitional Digital Objects” (2011) which explores the transitional aspect of digital objects in relation to autobiography; “Of Men, Champagne and Victory Aside” (2012) a playful examination into the theme of the ‘victory sign’ in the Arab world. In 2013, I worked on videos for “A Memory for Forgetfulness”, a play that premiered in the city theatre of Krefeld. An adaptation of Mahmoud Darwish’s prose poem.
