In Dew, dew on the artist’s lens evaporates to reveal the landscape of the Negev Desert. Two hours of film were condensed into three minutes, so that changes in the harshly beautiful landscape become a poetic metaphor for other kinds of changes, political and personal.

Neither Black nor White was filmed from the Jewish quarter of Nazareth looking onto the Arab village of Iksal. Half a second was recorded every thirty minutes to show city lights at night dimming as the sun rose on the village over a ten-hour period.
