water with water / فسّر الماء بالماء is an experimental publishing project based in Doha Qatar. Publications and projects of W/W/W speculate in visual form at the intersection of Gulf culture and contemporary art and design. For more info check out the FAQ.
Nathan Ross Davis, an associate professor at VCU School of the Arts Qatar, began water with water as a non-client based visual research lab which privileges graphic speculation and visual experimentation. W/W/W focuses on cultural and intellectual interests, rather than business driven economics.
Sarah Elawad has been an essential contributor to W/W/W projects since the beginning in 2015. Originally from the UK, Sarah's family roots are in Sudan. Her hybrid family history and her interest in the cultural relationships between the West and the Middle East inspire many of her contributions to the activities of W/W/W. Sarah currently lives and works in Amsterdam.
