Neon Heaters

Small personal heaters were used throughout 20th century Israel. I removed their heating elements and replaced them by my handwritten words which were crafted in bright neon lights. By plugging the heater into the electricity the words “love”, “home”, “lust”, “east”, “loss”, “moon”, “turn” and “burn” were switched on. I also made a series of diptychs with two connected heaters: “home + sick”, “home + alone”, “go + home”, “home + work”, “come + home”  and “home + less”.
