"We, Work" A new video work that was shot in the storage facilities of the 80 years old Mishkan Museum in Kibbutz Ein Harod. The sound was made in collaboration with Tarbut Movement.

Next to it, a sculpture that is cleaning the room floor while moving around and some extra thoughts on productivity and We-ness.
