Maraya


documentary

This film documents Maraya a large scale experimental and multi-layered art project consisting of an exhibition, series of public talks, walking tour and newly commissioned interactive website. Maraya (from the Arabic m’raya for mirror or reflection) examines the surprising reappearance of Vancouver’s most picture-postcard urban development, False Creek in the United Arab Emirates, as the Dubai Marina. These two cities are pioneering sites for a new type of 21st century urbanism, the hallmark of which is the urban waterfront development with glass and steel condominium towers, expansive seawall walkways and shimmering urban vistas.
