Borderline
BreathTurn - Exhibition in public spaces
This interactive video was shot on the Israel-Egypt border during the construction of a separation fence. The planned explosion captured in the video is carried out as a collaborative effort by the two countries, which maintain peaceful relations. Most of the video portrays the serene landscape of the desert. As viewers step into the space, they activate an explosion (via a motion sensor) over and over again, resonating the unbearable lightness of destruction.
