Evelyn extended her research-based practice, which predominantly involves collaborating with other artists, by creating a soundscape and a photographic series that reflect a socio-cultural dialogue with her immediate surroundings. A soundscape re-enacts the closed communities living side by side, making up segregated atmosphere that is Beirut. The series of photographs juxtapose the sense of destruction permeating the city, with the beauty advertisements imposing a continuous correction of outward appearances.
