Seeded Sight Wall

1980

“Tel-Hai 80 Conference Projects”, Upper Galilee, Israel. 5’H x 3’W x 90’L.

 

Dry stacked field stone, seed. On a low hill in an olive grove the wall rose out of the ground like a wedge to a high point at the center where a 3’ opening occurred. Standing within its center, a person could sight themselves in time and space, in reference to the walls of history and geography of Israel. The seeded wall eventually reversed its’ logic, becoming soft.

 

Curator: Amnon Barzel.

Commission: The twenty-three kibbutzim of Tel-Hai
