  • Broken Sky

    Installation with greased laserjet print of Iron Dome rocket, drywall construction, and clamp light. 2015.

    During the summer 2014 Israel-Gaza conflict, 4,564 rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza into Israel and the Israel Defense Forces attacked some 5,263 targets in Gaza. The Iron Dome is an Israeli missile defense system designed to intercept the rockets shot over civilian areas. When the rockets are intercepted you can feel the earth shake from the explosion overhead. It feels like the sky is breaking.

    In Tel Aviv that summer, I was getting coffee when there was a red alert. After the boom, we went outside where everybody was taking pictures of the small drop of cloud on the blue sky.
