The photo series Location 8 expands

my stay at one of the filming location

of the video work Sabbath 2008 and

functions as a story board, thus

turning the religious neighborhood

"Ramot Polin/ Polish Hills into a set,

a “location”, documenting its various

spaces and borders. This neighborhood

is located at the northern outskirts

of Jerusalem and inhabits a community

of religious jews. Built in the 1970's

to the designs of Zvi Hecker, Ramot

Polin was one of the few attempts by

the national Ministry of Housing, to

break out of the standard architecture

mold, and create a neighborhood built for a religious community. Hecker created a semi shtatel "beehive" clattered with almost no straight walls or windows.These photos, started as a research for  video work, and attention is turned towards different kinds of relations which exists in this  specific architectural social construct, following a movement from indoor to out door.
