Based on the site-specific work"self ritual' we try to reengage self-images that once were made as an honor for the great and now are the base for communication through social medias. Especially nowadays, during the Covid- 19 era, we are communicating through digital media based on headshots only (equivalent to the ancient busts). Disruptions happen often, separating sound form image, deteriorating our sense of wholeness. Hybrid situations cause time lapses. Within this reality we are asking what is happening to our sense of being and our longing for eternity and how does it affect our relationships and our human communication?
*Due to the fact that the piece includes a significant amount of spoken text in Hebrew, it is only open to Hebrew speakers at this time.
