  • Dysphoric Landscape (Bethlehem)

    Archival Inkjet print. 2017.

    1. The Möbius strip is a surface with only one side (when embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space), has only one boundary, and has the mathematical property of being unorientable.
    2. The Israeli West Bank barrier is a separation barrier in the West Bank and along the Green Line. Israel considers it a security barrier against terrorism, while Palestinians call it a racial segregation or apartheid wall.
    3. The wall is 25 feet tall and I am 6 feet tall. This structure has a disorienting effect on the landscape, making it hard to locate myself in space, though I know where I am.
