For over two decades I have developed graphic concepts for dozens of print materials, mainly artists’ books and museum catalogues. In my work I explore the tension between the different types of ‘readings’ — visual and textual — in order to challenge common understandings of linear browsing.
I specialize in Hebrew typography along with Arabic and Latin typography. In my work, the graphic (in)translatability of these languages presents itself in a bidirectional browsing. For me, the notion of bidirectional reading became an intrinsic element of the very structure of the book as an object in a multicultural context.
A senior lecturer at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, work regularly with leading museums and art institutions in Israel. I am currently completing an MA in cultural studies at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
