The idea of "Balance" was born when I saw a footprint in the sand.The toes squeezed out the sand and it rose under the heel.This form expressed the balance of sand masses but also the balance of non-material concepts such as take and receive
The first "Balance" was made from the earth in 1989 at my solo exhibition in Israel, in the fields of Kibbutz Givat Brener, where a grass carpet was grown for sale. Its shape still retained the shape of its prototype and was oval. Photos of the "Balance" project went viral on the Internet and in 2008 the organizers of the festival in France (Art Festival Chemin d'Art, Saint-Fleur, France) asked me to repeat this project. To move away from the prototype towards the universal law of the universe, I made the second version round. The project expresses in material form the philosophical law of balance between opposite sides of one essence. This is how the truths inherent in nature are revealed. Even in human relationships, how much you give is how much you get. Art contributes to the knowledge of the energy of the universe.
