Mohamed Bzeek, originally from Libya, moved to the U.S in 1978 for the university but stayed after getting married to Dawn, a foster mom for terminally ill children. Together they looked after 80 terminally ill children. His wife passed away in 2015, yet he continues to care for the girl that they adopted together, Samantha, a little girl who suffers from anencephaly-the absence of a major portion of the brain which results in her being deaf and blind. Mohamed must attend to her constantly throughout the day with her many needs and must always be alert. Samantha is almost seven now, and Mohamed wants to celebrate this success with a birthday party. However, it may not turn out as planned and may lead to a new dilemma.
Giorgio de Chirico was born on July 10, 1888, in Volos, Greece, to an Italian family. His mother, Gemma Cervetto, was from a family of Genoa origin, but most likely she was born in Izmir. His father, Evaristo, was born on June 21, 1841 in the Büyükdere district of Istanbul.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
