As we introduce FaceWorld™ it is a good time for me to do a little balance of what we have gone through with Faces iMake throughout the last almost 3 years since we started working on it.
We launched Faces iMake almost 2 and a half years ago for the iPhone and iPod. A year ago we added a much better version for the iPad. Over this period, more than 800,000 people downloaded our App and we have received countless of good press reviews and some prestigious awards such as a Parents’ Choice Gold Award. Apple has embraced us and has promoted us from time to time so we definitely have felt and feel like our work and our App is valued and appreciated.

This past summer I had one of the most emotionally and exciting adventures in all of my artistic career.
Over the course of 3 weeks, more than 2200 families came to the Beth Hatfutsot Museum in Tel Aviv and inspired by my art, they created a picture which described their family. These pictures, made with every-day objects were photographed and putting them all together, I am in the process of creating a 12 x 3 meters mural in the Museum which describes some chapters in the history of the Jewish people.
The idea is that each family is part of the larger story.
A play between individual, family and community.

This is a project I have been working on for some time now. Family Matters - What Families are Made of.
From August 5th 2012, we are inviting over 3000 families to Beth Hatfutsot to make a piece of art and tell us their story with objects. All the creations are going to be photographed and a beautiful poster of the art will be given to each family. Another copy will be printed on a 9.6 cm square by HP Indigo (thank you thank you). These will be 'my pixels' with which I will make a wall installation 10.5 meters long by 3 meters high.
Here is the website of the project
So come over and make a pixel. I need many! Any kind of families!

Last month I had the opportunity to participate in a great event: TechCamp Israel.
TechCamp is an initiative of Hillary Clinton and The USA State Department to narrow the gap between technology and social leaders. Events are held in many countries and I got to participate in the one held in Israel.

A huge job came my way a couple of months ago. Alex Isley, the legendary AD of Spy Magazine, was on the line. The task: create 55 portraits of speakers at TedMed conference. The deadline: 6 weeks ahead.
It became clear there was no way I could create that many portraits in such a short time.
