A Tree Standing, 2012

HD-Video, 1:25 min


A functioning washing machine in close-up shot. It is immensely enlarged and especially transparent. Inside the washing machine are T-shirts of the Palestinian workers who work in the olive grove of Kibbutz Revivim. Washing machine at work. For a moment the machine stops, and a shirt with the word "Bridge" flickers across the screen. The rotational constant and overflowing water, almost filling the remaining air gap; the window of opportunity closes. The storm kept going until it calmed down completely. A lot of dust is lifted into the air while the process takes place and so the water of this laundry is filthy. The workers seen in the "Masik" video agreed to wear the shirts which I prepared for them.
