One of seven newly commissioned short films,

In Bridges: Video Art Exhibition, July 2011
in Susan Dalal Centre and Tavi Art Gallery, Tel-Aviv 

The call for submissions for this show defined the theme Bridges as either a physical and architectural structure, or as a symbolic concept carrying broad definitions. A bridge could lead from the familiar to the unknown and timeless.

My piece investigates the optional bridging between Israel, where I was born and grew up, and London where I currently live and work. The centre-point of the cultural and lingual bridges is my practice. I wished I could “fold” those bridges and mix both environments.

My piece is a five minutes road-movie. I am importing nostalgia into reality thus bridging between the worlds. The journey is experienced through a 3-dimentional model of the house I grew up in. It arrives in London on a river, takes a train ride, goes by tube and being carried by me until we reach our new home together, passing well known London landmarks as well as personally significant locations.
