 Sometimes we have to take a break from intense life,  in order to look for reasons and meaning for our being here in this place, this time, this human environment.

To understand our task we need to find out where we’re headed.

As we start, it seems that there are hundreds of ways and junctions, and there is a deep core, an origin from which we can go anywhere.

As we start to get deep we get some peace of mind, we can see that there

is no where  we have to go, no other place to be and that here and now is the right place and time to be .

There is only the now.

Something inside starts to open up, we find golden answers right

“Tzimtzum”(He) | “Time space”

Posted in Inside, OutDoor on August 30, 2009 by ilanaaviv

In this work I search for the endless spiral movement of the “Or Ain sof”-the limitless light through time space.  The act whereby God “contracted” his infinite light, leaving a “void” into which the light of existence was poured.  The spiral form represents
The ten Sephirot, which is a step-by-step process illuminating the Divine plan as it unfolds itself in our world, being in constant relationship with each other.

Building Block Garden

Proposal for a sculptural piece to be set up in a public park – a building block garden.

Through this series of sculptures, I found a way to convey happiness and optimism to toddlers and the world, to relate to childish naiveté, and to enable toddlers to come across building blocks familiar to them from preschool games.  This work enables children to encounter a world akin to enticing colorful sweets, which piques the curiosity and spirit of adventurism; the toddlers can crawl beneath the “arch train”, and amuse themselves among the chunks of block.  Beyond its sculptural and visual value, this is a series of sculptures which speaks to children and families.
