My Dream House, 2012

In 2011 I was given a small grant by Ghadir found for Young Emerging Artists. I decided that project would be to build my dream home. At the beginning I thought that I could do it in three months. But a home takes more then three months to build. After a year of working on it I finally built my dream home – and it really is “my” dream home, as my wife Na’ama will tell you! It is about a meeter and a half long and there are eight rooms and a garden on top with soloar panels and wind turbine . There is a room for our children Sadin and Lin, for Naama and me and for our friends who come to visit. There is a living room, a play room, a kitchen, shower, bathroom and my workshop. In the meantime, the threat to my real home in Um el Kheir goes on. The last time the military and civil administration came to demolish a house in my village I ran home to take out all of the important things out – you never know which houses they are going to demolish.  So I took all the valuable things out of the house, which includes my models. When they come next time I am not sure I know how to take this house out since it is so big.
