Bat-Yam:  Archival City

The Installation was part of the Bat-Yam Festival, and was built on the sea-side promenade. Built of wooden pallets, the archive was lit from within and shone like a beacon, calling everyone to approach. After nearly a year of research, of studying the city, of collecting everything possible, from real archival material to plants, earth from around the city and items thrown away by people, the archive was finally open to the public. Exhibiting 11 different collections, the archive proposed a new narrative to the city. It became a place of memory, of acknowledging the urban surrounding with it's visual imagery, it's sound, it's geology, architecture, history, past and present.
