Sarah Rifaat is a graphic designer and photographer based in Cairo, Egypt. In 2010, Rifaat was one artist selected to participate in 350.org’s global EARTH art project. In ancient Egyptian culture, the Scarab, a beetle-like insect, was associated with rebirth and often illustrated as holding up the sun. On November 26, 2010 in Cairo, Sarah’s 350 EARTH installation will form the traditional image of Scarab and Sun using people and solar panels. Additionally, the larger-than-life art piece will be photographed by satellites.
