“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

Both strands experiment with video form as poetic expression. Often involving close family and travel footage, a common theme is addressing the fine line between tranquillity and chaos, and fragility of existence, especially in the context of childhood, aiming to extract humaneness from digital video code. The works explore uncertainty and its political implications, in a world bombarded with images, superfluous contradicting information and growing realization of falsity of perception.
