LevitatingMo

My name is Mohammed Jahama. I am a writer and aspiring levitation expert. I like projects that push the limits of my creativity and I like metaphors. Levitation is a placeholder for the more mystical aspects of the creative process. The act of harnessing creative energy. It takes practice.

What I'm working on:

The projects below are how I'm learning to achieve consistent flight. They conveniently correspond to three skill-sets, flow, connection and narrative.
This website is a museum and a way to look forward. Hit the arrows for more.
Flow:
Write with no intention. IllustratedMurals turns the most passable phrases into poems and pairs them with pictures. The first one is called, Sitting on a cornflake. Scroll down to see it.
Connection
At the School of Levitation, we pride ourselves on always ending up very close to where we started.
Narrative
I want to tell stories that change the world. And that means mastering structures from marketing campaigns to hero myths. My first novel, FreaksofArabia, tries to do both.

Freaksofarabia

 

My first novel, Freaksofarabia, follows Mohammed Al-Fawkes as he returns to Jordan after seven years abroad and attempts to launch a digital marketing campaign and art collective. Equipped with an army of online bots and a carefully selected roster of references, Fawkes intends to redefine Arabness.

School of Levitation

The School of Levitation is committed to helping artists learn to channel and control creative energy. Our objective is sustained, consistent creativity. We’re working to create a community of artists dedicated to putting inspiration on a leash and actualizing our creative visions. This isn’t something any of us have fully mastered individually but I think we have a better shot together. 

The services we offer aim to give artists the tools necessary to fly by my themselves. This could range from digital consultation and web development to editing, brainstorming, time management and levitation sessions.

“Then the writing became so fluid that I sometimes felt as if I were writing for the sheer pleasure of telling a story, which may be the human condition that most resembles levitation.”

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
