whether its a magnets’ force creating storms of colours or cause and effect of chemical means in composition, hicham berrada conquered this ground by screening the process. video as an observational tool is art due to his very regard and curation of chemical effects. striking aesthetics underpinned by scientific relevance. the joy of exploration results in an alchemical theater
