Drawing on the architecture of what is commonly known as The Flying Saucer, an eccentric building from the
1970s with a storied past (grocery store, fast-food restaurant) and whose status is now in flux, and underscoring its obsolescence, Khan presents a glass sculpture that combines the sleek and minimal form of a column with a rough, maladroit shape.
This commissioned video echoes the structure of Egyptian comedy.
