Legends of Heartbreak and Epiphany in Tel-Aviv, (2012)

An artist project commissioned by Artis.
Performance: Monday, April 16, 2012 at the Phaidon Store on Wooster Street, NYC

Every city I have been in exists in my head in two, superimposed maps: the first is a practical one of intersections, street names and subway stations; the other is a kind of a web, containing experiences, encounters and emotions which moved me in a way that made them, and where they happened, unforgettable.

Legends of Heartbreak and Epiphany in Tel Aviv consists of an original, limited edition map of Tel Aviv, a public performance and an ongoing digital archive. Conceived in response to the official tourist guides of Tel Aviv, my symbolic mapping of the city contains the private moments, experiences and histories that continually reinforce and shape our connections to this unique place.

The stories on this blog were contributed by anonymous writers during the months of March and April 2012. The ones written by April 4th were included in the first edition of this project
