Influenced by the geopolitics of my country of origin—Israel—and its occupied Palestinian territories, my work attempts to represent terrestrial grabs, boarders and uprooting in motion using visual data from monitoring agencies that operate in the West Bank and document human rights violations.


Impressed by early landscape memory of my homeland I combine the two aspects into a crypto-cartography—an oscillating image of a land that is one.
