Tree Village

Rail Coridor, Jerusalem
Sept 2012

53 paper mache houses hung from trees along the light rail tracks, Jerusalem. The houses were hung in pairs, one high and one low. When the wind blew the houses swayed.

 

As I was installing the piece with Rachel Gordon, people came up and talked to us. As usual, the haredim who came up to us had the best questions, the most interesting, and most encouraging comments. I think the religious community is desperate for art.

    Not to take anything away from the art, but, inasmuch as these houses hold space inside, they’d have made great new nesting sites, had you punched each with a “window”. You’d have befit two birds with one punch.
