  • Shamayim (there are waters)

    Single channel video installation, drywall, wood, & 2 tons of sand. 1 hour loop. Stereo sound. 2015.

    In "Shamayim (there are waters)", the Pacific Ocean rotates along the horizon, exchanging sky for sea and blue for blue, in reference to Genesis 1:6, where “G-d said, ‘Let there be an expanse in the midst of the water, and let it be a separation between water and water.’” In Hebrew the word for sky/heaven is "shamayim" which breaks apart to form the two words sham (there) and mayim (waters). In this installation, the roar of the ocean transforms and becomes the explosion of rockets and the rending of earth.
