Hind has been collaborating with Total Arts Gallery on many projects, including:

- Video Installation, Dreamscape, Nov 2023, A looping video projection casts a montage of found images into the space. The textures and tones of the region’s land surfaces are filtered and distorted so they appear hazy, just out of grasp of comprehension. These scenes dissolve into draped fabric offering a sense of the flickering of light and shade, experienced as one moves through the forest. Hind’s habitat invites viewers to traverse and connect to the space, forging an intimate relationship with it.

- Video Installation “Ma’bain’albainain (ما بين البينين)” , March 2022
A meditative video composition that invites spectators to reflect on the space in-between us as beings, the space in-between our thoughts, the space in-between layers of earth and beyond. A collective of moving images that are imprinted on fabric and threads.
