This past year is definitely a year with new and different projects for me.
5 months ago I was contacted by the Rabin Medical Center in Israel, to help them develop a campaign which, through the use of art would create conscience among medical stuff to keep viruses and bacteria away (by making sure they wash their hands repeatedly).
At first it seemed a very difficult subject to deal with. I wasn't sure what would be the right tone to use.
One bug for you. Made with stuff found in the hospital.

My HOP TV program starts airing today in Israel. It sounds like Hafatzim Mitlotsesim which means something like... Objects Joking Around.

In Israel more soldiers or ex-soldiers are requesting help for emotional problems due to a war related episode. A special army unit headed by Dr Ofir Levy treats and helps anybody who is experiencing PTSD and approaches them for help. What was before unheard within the Israeli society is now becoming a bit more acceptable and people are more open about it.

I love working with Richard Turley from the G2 section of The Guardian. First of all because he sounds like Hugh Grant so I feel like I'm in The Diary of Bridget Jones. But even better, he always has ideas that push me into doing things I wouldn't be doing otherwise.

After 15 days of being away from my family, my studio and my ‘day job’, I am more than happy to come home.
So many great images in my head (and camera) of the last two weeks and of the10 or so workshops I gave in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Washington DC and Baltimore.
Hopefully I’ll be able to post more pictures soon.

I just finished two days of workshops for children in the Museo de los Niños in San Jose, Costa Rica, where a show of my work is being exhibited.
The museum is in this amazing fortress, which used to be a jail until 1979.
After having being empty for some years it was renovated as a Cultural Center 13 years ago. The building houses the National Gallery and the Children Museum.
