“The Teen Queens, Emilia McCarthy and Niamh Wilson.

At age eight, Emilia McCarthy (left), now 17, doubled for Elle Fanning as Brad Pitt’s desert-wandering daughter in Babel, while Saw franchise veteran Niamh (pronounced Neeve) Wilson, also 17, has been paying income tax since she was five.”

Toronto City of Labyrinths makes a cameo in the current issue of Flare Magazine as these two actors walk Kensington Market Labyrinth in Bellevue Square Park.

“CN Tower from Kensington Market” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Bellevue Square Park – Toronto

The surface of this wading pool in Bellevue Square Park has reached its end of life.

No matter how many times I repaint my Labyrinth, no combination of colours can overcome the shortcomings of the canvas.

Labyrinth remains walkable, yet doing so isn’t as much fun as when I first painted it . . .

“The Labyrinth of Qur’an…” — By Mohamed Mehdi Aourir

“This project emphasizes once again on the power of calligraphy and its crucial role in Islamic art. I though the first project (ALLAH calligraphy) was not enough to explore the rich universe Islamic calligraphy has to offer.

“For this project, I mixed calligraphy with the lecture about Qur’an (by using Surat Al-Fatiha) and that about interpretations…

“In fact, for this project, I created a labyrinth out of the first Surah in the Qur’an (Surat Al-Fatiha) by using a very unique type of calligraphy.”

“The reason why I mention interpretation is that the way the Surah was represented is full of meanings. I believe the Qur’an is a very powerful work of art where the readers get lost, just like Alice did in the wonderland…

“In fact, this sheds the light on the importance of interpretations and ijtihad in Islam since once ayah in the Qur’an can have many meanings. Getting lost in the Labyrinth and finally seeing the light and finding the way out with a rational interpretation is what makes the Qur’an experience very unique for Muslims and non-Muslims.

“As a side note, I wanted the calligraphy style to be one where there is no obvious end in the words to represent some situations we can face nowadays, where some debates are endless and where you can see neither the end of the arguments nor that of the debate…

“I hope you enjoyed the labyrinth of Qur’an. Please read it. You might get lost. But hopefully, you will find yourself fast enough. That is all that matters.”

Mohamed Mehdi Aourir, Harvard
