The Scrapbook Project

The Scrapbook Project forms an archive of personal and collective histories, unfolding over three distinct diaries. The first, The Scrapbook Project 1/3 (2010-2011) brings together 34 pages sparsely adorned with drawn transfers, expired Polaroid film and oil stick drawings on aged paper. In keeping with Waheed’s longstanding interest in coded messages and undisclosed documents, this intimate volume is rich in reference yet spare in form. Born in Canada and raised within the gated community of Saudi ARAMCO – home to a quarter of the world’s oil exports – Waheed’s early years were imprinted by strict regulations on representation, specifically prohibiting civilian photography. Coinciding with the end of the Cold War and first Gulf War, these conditions of secrecy and isolation prompted Waheed to develop a childhood obsession with identifying aircraft, tracking flight routes, and keeping a log of observations in a diaristic visual language. The Scrapbook Project is a glimpse into this world.
