Larissa Sansour got a previous mention here for A Space Exodus. Her latest project, Nation Estate, sounds really awesome too:

Nation Estate depicts a science fiction-style Palestinian state in the form of a single skyscraper housing the entire Palestinian population. Inside this new Nation Estate, the residents have recreated their lost cities on separate floors: Jerusalem on 3, Ramallah on 4, Sansour’s own hometown of Bethlehem on 5, etc.

TUNISIA ████████████████ : 100% done

EGYPT ████████████████ : 100% done

ALGERIA ███░░░░░░░░░░░░░: in progress

YEMEN ███░░░░░░░░░░░░░: in progress

PALESTINE ░░░░░░░░░░░░░: VIRUS DETECTED

From now on I will think of the two-state solution as dual-booting.

An excerpt from Larissa Sansour’s “A Space Exodus”: to the strains of "Also Sprach Zarathustra", Sansour (as an astronaut) steps onto the moon declaring “A small step for a Palestinian, a giant leap for mankind” and plants a Palestinian flag, and waves at the Earth. Via online journal Scholar & Feminist Online's “Polyphonic Feminisms” issue, which is super awesome and you should all check it out.
