6 HD channels | projected on detached screens | 09:18 minutes | Loop | Sound | Israel | 2009
Six video films are projected within a single closed space, one of which is split across two screens.
Ofakim. Documented as it is now, while projecting the emptiness that emanates from its dilapidated industrial zone and from the town itself. The deserted cinema hall, the deserted factories from the 1980s. Pigeons occupying empty spaces. Echoes of unemployment. Supposedly unrelated actions like a male stripper in the middle of the factory, trying to appear relevant in this deserted and otherwise irrelevant place.
