**Limited Edition of 80 copies. 102 pages, perfect bound 6″x6″ book, hand numbered. Includes glass-mastered CD.** Nour Mobarak’s Sphere Studies and Subterranean Bounce is the catalog for her sculpture and audio installation, which adorned the steep hillside of Los Angeles’ Hakuna Matata sculpture garden in the Fall of 2020. Eli Diner’s press release reads:  "Up on the hill, Mobarak presents two related bodies of work. The six Sphere Studies are part of her ongoing examination of the material and metaphoric possibilities of mycelium. Growing through a substrate in a rhizomatic system of hyphae, mycelium has its own kind of intelligence, one that opens the possibility of personal relationship. As a material it is versatile and malleable; only for those who understand it, however, will it work, assuming the ternary role of material, subject and studio assistant.  Then there is a *five-channel sound installation emanating from the bowels of the earth. Subterranean Bounce is built from recordings of the movements of spheres of various sizes and densities [*a stereo mix is presented on the audio-CD in the back of the book]."  An essay of gentle wit and fantasy by Hakuna Matata’s Eli Diner – along with a selection of Mobarak’s poems – rotate the axis of this highly faceted art book. All enriched by the 40-minute spherical CD.  This is the second edition of Mobarak’s on Recital, the other being Father Fugue, her first LP – published in 2019.
