Ahmed has returned to the art studio after 5 years of not creating any sculpture. Here we see his latest piece, "Grieving Woman." Despite his desire to escape war through art, he finds that the war is still haunting his imagination.
Ahmed recently visited the military base at Ft. Bragg, NC. He talks to Dick Gordon about the profound ambivalence he felt about meeting troops there: how it was both difficult on one level and yet humanizing on another.
