Manot is the name of a community settlement established in the 1980s, near Israel's northern border with Lebanon. The images present the old houses of the community members, homes left to stand after new, trendier, and more spacious houses were built to replace them. In a process where images overlay, they dissolve to create an utterly new, multilayered image, one that encapsulates the history of the photographs that comprise it. This new image is then laden with opaque white lines, covering and hiding it in a way that allows for glimpsing and interpretation. Manamanot occurs in in an historical, cultural, social, and political timeline between past and present, in a world of global material economy. The work deals with society and culture potential representation modes, through exploring the medium of photography and the transformation undergoes a photographed image in particular. A reconstruction process is taking place during this work, following a continual addition of images layers on top of layers and so on, until a completely new image is put together eventually. This new image is wrapped in white colored stripes which cover and conceal it, yet still leave room for peeking and reading it. This work is a digital adaptation of stills images taken nearby the Israel-Lebanon border in 2010. The photographs were interfered and disrupted by means of computer software, then converted into video format which combines movement with graphic animation.
