Guest post : Hala Dabaji - TERRORISM or the Beirut Building Boom

Hala Dabaji, an artist with a keen urban eye, located this mutating graffiti. You can see some of her work on her website.

"Series of panels at the entrance of a building site, next to my studio.
The construction workers move the panels each time they open / close the entrance to the site
They are definitely not playing standard scrabble. They say these are the Beirut Building Boom vocabulary" Hala Dabaji

(The last couple of year, everyday a historical building goes down, everyday a sky scraper is born. In addition to artists' reaction, activists, creating a facebook group Save Beirut Heritage, reacted last month with a demonstration. Many are furious but not much is changing.)
