    "Ultimately Al Said's experiments in time and space led to what he termed "the experience of environmental truth in art." As a new form of realizing the One-Dimension, istilham al-sahnah al-jidariyah, seeking inspiration from or integrating "the wall" in art, became Al Said's last obsession with expressing the collapse of time into space until his death in 2004, as the result of his second clinical depression that left him debilitated during the last year of his life. Al Said's work is a testimony to the depth of theoretical and historical difference (localness) despite of surface "global" visual similarities."
