#alternativefacts is a project of #art #design based on #retro #kitsch #vintage #archive #material with #digital #detail by @tarekchemaly - a #bittersweet #proust #travel #trip to the #wanderlust #fake #past of #lebanon to #question #history (or lack of it) in an attempt to understand how the #country ended up with a #war on fault lines focused on: #social #class #economics #religion #politics - allowing pop culture to eliminate our differences when politics divides us is the bridging gap we should be embracing! Politics stems from the Greek words Polis (city) and Ethos (ethics) so it means "the #ethics of living in a #community". Lebanon still has no history book to cover the war period, but our collective #memory must be saved and explored and transmitted to a younger generation.

That grey building blocked the sunset from me yesterday and it got me thinking about how high Lamu some buildings rise. It is very unlike the skyline of Mombasa Old Town buildings or even those of Zanzibar! I'm curious if they simply built on top of the old houses because I really don't think they built houses this high before the 1900s. #buildings #history #Lamu #vintage #EastAfrica #Old #Mombasa #Zanzibar #Swahili #Culture #Africa #Architecture #OldTown #TheWhiteHouse

When I heard about the history of this architectural structure, I could imagine the prehistoric facts at the time of Vijayanagara empire and their pomps. The moment when I captured this proclaims time travel. #travel #vijayanagara #andrapradeshtourism #architecture #india #history

Favourite place in Mumbai. Dates back to mid 1st century, sits tightly in Bharat Nagar today. Has become a great community centre for the locals.
