To expose to the observer, by means of a video sculpture, the inner search that I’m going through by which I am trying to understand the place religion will have in my life.

Techniques of collage and layering are used to illustrate the complexities inherent in the project. Having images in different gradients show the depth and different intensities in which religion can be understood, taken upon, and interpreted. The use of a grid format is used to show the constraints and structure of the laws within Judaism. The images on the outside represent the religious and secular worlds I can fit into, religion is clear when viewed from a distance while overwhelming while limiting when I come closer, the secular world appears confusing from a distance but is familiar when I get nearer.
