1: By Study בתלמוד
It was hard to ground myself in any one aspect of learning and to really make something of it. But when I sat down in the studio, I realized that what inspired me was the experience in its entirety; being able to sit down and engage fully with your own self through the words of Tanach and Talmud.
Multidisciplinary artist Savyon was inspired by 3: By An Understanding Heart בבינת הלב to create a 70 page text in Hebrew that progresses visually on the page in a unique way.
"The kinyan that I worked on was 'the wisdom of the heart.' The wisdom of the heart is what everything is made of, especially artistic creations."
5: By Awe ביראה
Devorah Roytenberg Charash wove a Talit using the klaf and leather straps from Tefillin as the traditional stripes. The installation is hung from the ceiling forming a wedding canopy that incorporates the words of the “Shma” overhead. Devorah states, “ When one stands under the wedding canopy one steps into a new stage in one’s life, one that connects us to our history and traditions and fills us with awe. Thus, this installation links us to the awe manifested in the words of our Torah.”
