The installation is a closed dark room where two models are installed opposite to one another and transmitting text through light base Morse code.
The first model is based on a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv that was build in 1936 and is also called ‘the boat building’ as a reference to its boat-like shape. The building is set on top of a cliff-like structure that resemble an isolated desert mountain.
In the window of the top building there is a single white LED lamp that is transmitting a text taken out of Theodor Herzl’s utopian novel from 1902 called Altneland.
Theodor Herzl is the founder of the Zionistic movement, in his book he tells the story about the realization of a Zionistic state in the land of Palestine and the return of the Jews back to their historic land. When the book was translated into Hebrew, it was called Tel Aviv, Which means in Hebrew; Spring Hill.
