’Sing Me a Song and Tell Me Your Story’ is the fruit of the collaboration between Dana Levy (Israel) and Mark Lafier (USA). Mark and Dana met for the first time on a program featuring guest artists. The product of this encounter was a proposal for a project they submitted to the Israeli Center for Digital Art. The project addresses the topic of wandering, one of the more meaningful ramifications of technological advance. The project will first be presented in Israel before it is featured in other exhibition halls worldwide. The project - just like the phenomenon it addresses - will wander from one exhibition hall to the next, whereby each display will adhere to the same laws as its predecessor, namely an encounter of a foreign artist with a local one and a request of those they call upon to sing a song and tell their story. Songs are sometimes passed on for many years - be it from home or from regions of the past whose origins are long gone. These are songs of exile which exude love of the land and perpetuate a long tradition of songs of yearning. This singing stems from different places and dimensions and carries forth a lineage of decades, centuries and millennia. Just like traditional food and clothing, popular songs tell us from whence they have come.
