Project: Time Travels: Building a State in the Middle East
A function draws rectangles in different sizes with different offsets on a canvas.
The rectangles are used to cut into Israeli history textbooks in order to identify patterns in settler colonial pedagogy.
All textbooks contain a single image from 1948, of Al Nakba, the ongoing Palestinian catastrophe.
Through cutting into the textbooks, the image is made visible to provide opportunities for self study.
