Site-Specific Improvisational Performance,

Title: "My Dwelling You Will See"

Vac Hungary Synagogue. 

This improvisational performance was created to metaphorically provide a proper "burial" for the faceless and nameless Jewish victims of the Holocaust who once gathered within the synagogue's now cracked and hollowed walls. Items left by trespassers and the Hebrew inscription: "My dwelling you will see" written above the synagogue's entrance provide provocative images of despair and absurdity. The synagogue's interior was not altered: all items that appear in the performance were original or placed by trespassers. This performance is Part 1 or an installation and performance series on Jewish memory and loss called "My Dwelling You Will See."

Title: "Greed"

This site-specific installation was installed in the ruins of a 1906 barrack in the Marin Headlands, north of San Francisco. "Greed" challenged the contemporary term for genocide, "ethnic cleansing," which suggests something clean, good and right instead of dirty, ugly and bloody. The project included slide projection, sculptural and sound installations and performance.

Move to installation page

This public art installations were part of a series called "The Tree Series." The Christmas tree was used as a metaphor for Christianity, wherein lies one root of anti-Semitism. The face of a woman awaiting transportation. The other two faces were projected around the Christmas tree. Archival photographs were used for the projections. A Yiddish language learning tape played continuously to suggest the ironies of learning a language without people left to speak it.
