DATE OF BIRTH
I learned to knit when I was nine. My mother taught me how to, and for her birthday that year she got a very long and very colourful scarf knitted by her daughter. I learned how to use a sewing machine soon after, and to my friend's Bat Mitzvahs I used to sew Britney Spears style pleated skirts. My interest in crafts, that I inherited from my mother's side of the family, continued to be a part of my life along with my deep interest in science, that I inherited from my father's side of the family. In high school I majored in biology, physics, math and German, and crafts took a secondary role for some time.
At the age of 22 I studied in an environmental science program and developed my political views, at the age of 23 I worked as a cook and fell in love with the craft of cooking. I was looking for a place that would feed my intellectual and creative appetite. I found the double bachelor's program of the Hebrew University and Bezalel Academy. I decided to study cognitive neuroscience and ceramics and glass design.
When I first experienced glass blowing I realized this is IT. The process was fascinating, the outcomes were expressive. I started being interested in the connecting points between my two disciplines. I made a small study regarding synchronization of neural beats between glass blowing partners, and started to make art that is multi sensory, adding taste odor and tactility into my artworks. I recently finished my bachelor's, and started a master's program in Art & Science, in the Angewandte university of applied arts.
WHO I AM
I am a glass artist and a cognitive scientist, exploring the liminal spaces of science and art.
