posted: December 23, 2012

It was great to revisit with Richard Wilde who has had a great influence in my life as a wonderful teacher.

Here's a little video on the workshop I have conducted with some of Richard's students.

TEDx Jerusalem

posted: December 19, 2012

Over 6 months ago I was approached by

the Tedx Jerusalem to talk at the event.

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.

Family Matters - 2 thirds done

posted: September 07, 2012

This past summer I had one of the most emotionally and exciting adventures in all of my artistic career.

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.
