Documentation of three groups of artworks that Achituv presented at the “Tozeret Haaretz" show in 2003. The “Pendulum Drawings” are a series of dynamic images generated by the trail of a simulated light as it swings back and forth or spirals in and out at varying speeds. “Landscape Painting” is a series of site-specific environmental interventions in which physical portions of the landscape are combined with computer-generated dynamic and interactive abstract animations. The projection light is utilized as a sculptural tool to mold the natural and man-made surroundings by emphasizing―or alternatively blurring―the shapes of the projected-upon objects. The composition of digital image with physical form and space creates hybrid objects imbued with characteristics of both the virtual and the real. Like the American-Indian sand paintings, these transitory drawings invite the viewer to witness the process of their making and unravelling.“Text Rain” (created in collaboration with Camille Utterback) is an interactive installation in which participants use the familiar instrument of their bodies, to do what seems magical — to lift and play with falling letters that do not really exist. In the Text Rain installation participants stand or move in front of a large projection screen. On the screen they see a mirrored video projection of themselves in black and white, combined with a color animation of falling letters. Like rain or snow, the letters appears to land on participants’ heads and arms. The letters respond to the participants’ motions and can be caught, lifted, and then let fall again. The falling text will ’land’ on anything darker than a certain threshold and ’fall’ whenever that obstacle is removed. If a participant accumulates enough letters along their outstretched arms, or along the silhouette of any dark object, they can sometimes catch an entire word, or even a phrase. The falling letters are not random, but form lines of a poem about bodies and other subjects.
