Jerusalem Diary

Hand-tracings of regional maps and handwritten responses of 194 individuals in 15 writing systems to the question: “What is home?” collected in November and December 2013 during an American Academy in Jerusalem residency.  The tracings were glued to a 24” x 72” piece of paper, then ripped into small pieces and reassembled into the Jerusalem Diary.

(The artist is grateful to the American Academy in Jerusalem Residency which made this work possible.)
