"The Peace Cylinder Performance"
Performances (An ongoing project since 2012)
The Peace Cylinder Performance (Collaboration between the Peace Cylinder Artists and Musicians)
In this project, a ceramic replica of the cylinder with the original declaration engraved on the surface and a wooden roller covered by a polymer plate that holds the last chapter of the Book of Esther in Hebrew are used in performance to create prints on clay and paper. The ritual rolling of each device underscores the importance of the message that each text bears and the similarity of each act of printing reflect the common themes and the universal significance that each text tells in its own way. At the end of the performance, the clay and paper prints are given as gifts to members of the audience.
