Calligraphy in public space
The Berlinbased music label Malka Tuti and I have collaborated to create the art that decorates this full 2xLP: EROPA by TAPAN, designed by Morey Talmor and featuring my illustration and calligraphy silkscreen on the dark side of the vinyl.
The map illustrates one of the most well-trodden paths on the refugee journey to Europe: The Balkan Route.
“EROPA is dedicated to and inspired by events in 2015 & 2016, which saw the spectre of global crisis come knocking at Europe’s doorstep. During this time, more than a million migrants and refugees fled their homes in the Middle East, Northern Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and other conflict ravaged areas in search of a better life. For many, hopes of a future for themselves and their families lay in continental Europe. One of the most well-trodden paths on this journey was the Balkan Route, a trail leading through Turkey, Greece, and the former Yugoslavia. This route was not without its dangers, and the dreams of many were dashed by impassible security fences and discordant EU politics, as one by one they were turned away at borders, or worse, forcibly returned to their countries of origin.”

A duo of music producers, creating together a mad mix of ethnic backgrounds with electronic bass music, dub and hip hop. ECHO is a singer/MC, and TITO is a real sonic explorer/ musician. The feminine power Echo brings on, and the deep vibrating beats Tito creates, merge and collide to form a massive synergy that explodes on stage.

FATHOM HIGH is a dance technique that uses the Feldenkrais method as a departure point, an inspiration and an approach to the action of learning. Feldenkrais is a system of neuro-motor training and reconditionin that transforms people's lives, helping them gain new skills and move beyond pain and limitation. eytal's deep curiosity towards a possible fusion between Feldenkrais and dance led her to develop FATHOM HIGH. This work has deeply altered the wa sh moved and perceived the body. After witnessing her personal transformation, she elt a strong urge to share hi practice with as man people as possible.
FATHOM HIGH' main goal is to 'unlock' movement patterns by delicately destabilizing them, so that new possibilities become accessible. By sing our nherent europlastic ability to rewire and change our habits from the cor, we can 'tap' into a deeper, more primal understanding of our body and it's mechanics. Through this process, new movement pathways open, unveiling an ocean of possibilities. he richness within the movement grows and it's quality deepens.

Visual identity for a multidisciplinary jam session | 2011
The Diningroom is a code name for underground conceptual sessions taking place in Tel Aviv. A community of artists and performers from different disciplines meeting regularly to create colors, shapes and sounds.
The Diningroom fuses music, dance, photography, painting, video art,
and anything that moves into a hot cauldron of life, and creates an autonomous environment, without borders, inviting each participant to actively take part in the real time art process with fellow artists.
Specifically in this urban reality where people are fighting for their place and their say, the Diningroom allows growth of an artistic community, and builds a platform where every artist is equal,
inviting each member to give in to the experience, and to connect to a higher purpose.
