Roadmap For Peace is a participatory sculpture, where players navigate their way from Psagot to Bethlehem, on Scalextric tracks. The route maps out existing roads in Palestine and Israel, where due to restrictions on movement based on citizenship, the route becomes separated; one for Israeli citizens and one for Palestinians. It was commissioned for Now Play This 2018, at Somerset House, London.
The track was fabricated with Jono Sandilands.
CoolHunting wrote a blog about the festival, which I feel captures the intention of my piece. And you can see a couple of glimpses of my work, and listen to Holly Gramzio and George talk about Now Play This, in this short video. If you’d like to get an overview of the festival, Paul Callegan, writes for the British Council, and briefly mentions the work here.
