    Split screen single channel video projected onto two walls. 8:15min, loop. Stereo sound. 2015.

    Parade is a split screen video that manipulates and juxtaposes footage taken from youtube to show examine the ways that Israelis and Palestinians are represented in video, both in the public domain and online. It explores the ways these two cultures and their respective narratives run parallel, the moments where they overlap, and the moments that have no comparison. Beginning with imagery familiar to the standard narrative of the conflict, the video switches from scenes of protest, celebration, weddings, dancing, motorcycles and masculine posturing, until finally the landscape devolves into pulsing squares of color.
