Mazes of the soul

Located in Hilton Hotel The theme of this work deals with the Yearn of every Jew to Jerusalem and its wholeness facing the reality of the city. I began this work with a harmonious form, and then I cut into it, symbolically revealing the hidden strata of Jerusalem: it’s whole and illuminating, while being divided and war-torn.

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.
