The Palestinian occupied territory today found itself surrounded by a concrete wall.
The eight meters high wall imposing itself on the landscape like a giant snake and built entirely on occupied Palestinian land. Stealing the land and the natural resources, separating people and most importantly creating a collective feeling amongst the Palestinians of “Suffocation”.

Through movement and visual we express the mental state of mind of the Palestinian people which are exposed to the wall. We point out the state of being pressed more and more against the wall, with the dealing of borders, frontiers and from the resulting losing even the freedom of breath.
