Tomorrow, she will beat the dust again. In the video, the protagonist (the artist as the performer) beats dust in Cairo with a dust cloth dyed orange/cinnabar. This technique is used there for dusting. Cinnabar set in motion a process of analysis, not only of the colour, but also of the term “cinnabar” and its possible origin and meaning. Is “beating dust” senseless or worthless? Do the concepts of self and memory lack worth?
