Schizophrenic State

2003 / Israel, United States / 5min

A work made while living in New York City. Two images appeared on my TV screen: An Israeli soldier being lynched in Ramallah, a Palestinian child and his father being fired at in Gaza. How can horror be constructed in words? It's a schizophrenic situation - two sides trapped in a cycle of violence. Being in a personal schizophrenic state as well, watching this in New York - not here nor there. Are these images real? Are any images real?
