Correspondence - A Visual Journey Diary

2022

painted images, radio transmission

Center for Digital Art in Holon, Rakia mission

Eytan’s mission is taking him to a place whose designation is scientific, rational, a laboratory in search of answers to questions. Man’s presence beyond Earth fascinates me. It raises questions about our very existence - ideas and sentiments which transcend the boundaries of space and time. In my work I create idea-based visual images. I feed off text and intuitively I respond in an illustrated image. This is how I interpret reality for myself, the way I mediate it to the world.


I choose to focus on the dimensions of consciousness and the dimensions which are non-conscious.


During the preparatory stages for the flight, during the flight itself, while in space and en route back to Earth. Eytan and I will be maintaining a dialog, which is going to be based on questions I will be posing to him. His answers will form the inspiration for my illustrated responses.


Following that I will be processing them into illustrated and painted images, which I will be beaming back to Eytan in real-time. This exchange of letters and drawings will be taking place in that place between where Eytan will be hovering on the Station in space, and my home in Tel Aviv.


This exchange of space letters is intended to create a visual documentation of his journey from Earth to space and back.
