One of my favorite installations

at the Brooklyn Museum is

Mounir Fatmi's "Maximum Senstation,"

a work composed of 50 skateboards, 

each covered with a patchwork

of Islamic prayer rugs!!!

 

Referencing the artist's own experience 

of being raised in a Moroccan Muslim family  

living in contemporary France,

is a vivid example of

"cultural of globalization"!!!

 

The metaphor of the Muslim culture of prayer,

meeting the hip-hop skate board culture

is very appealing to me....

or is it the rugs ....

they really are "divine accessorations"!!!
