The (new) dictionary of THINGS

New times require new ways of organizing, owning, utilizing and displaying everyday ordinary objects and THINGS. The current ongoing changes in our lives require adaptation and adjustment, a  fragile state that leaves many of us in confusion and self deliberation. Our homes take on new roles, therefore THINGS gain new definitions within new ever-changing hierarchies. We now ask ourselves what is necessary and what is not? What is essential? What do we actually need? What are the THINGS in life that we once thought we needed, and now we can leave behind? Consequently, what is the ultimate THING we cannot live without? 

This new dictionary consists of images of THINGS in two categories: Keepers and Throw-Aways. This dictionary displays a current, new order of THINGS.

It acts as a time-capsule of THINGS, an updated cabinet of curiosities.

time space and the illusion of a seperate me ( ego)

i have experienced a deeper level of connection and unity during quaranteen than in my “normal life”. i realized that we dont’t have to see each other in order to connect. what we need to do, is to open our hearts and act as a community, in harmony.
with everything put on hold and you are forced to stop running against a concept that is called time.

Viruses

While a question mark becomes the most common punctuation mark, we are called upon to examine the standards by which necessity is determined.
I chose two things hidden from view: one, due to its small size, and the other for its prevalence in our lives to the point of losing our awareness of its existence.
The works are expressed in the design style of an old illustrated dictionary, in order to give the values ​​the validity of the selected values

My travel sketchbooks from journeys to distant places have become even more precious in a time when we don’t know when we will be able to freely travel again. The memories they hold allow me to mentally escape the confines of my home and will serve as time capsules of a more carefree time.

Yoga

if you experience everything as yourself,- you are in yoga because, yoga literally means union. when you and the other have disappeared - only you exist.- so a yogi is someone, who has experienced this oneness of existence. realizing that you are not only part of existence but the existence is also part of you. - as a wave is part of the ocean - the ocean is also part of the wave.
a yoga mat transformed into a flying carpert - a modern version of the fairytale “One Thousand and One Nights”. acryl and gold leaves.the work is inspired by the patterns and design of vintage floor tiles in tel aviv and the art of Persian carpets weaving.
