Cardinal Directions

A photographic series,
an HD video, and
an artist book

This project explores ideological connections between the nineteenth-century American belief in manifest destiny and contemporary Israeli settlements in Palestinian Territories. Both stem from religious convictions that make permissible expansion into what are perceived as desolated lands.

The video and photographs feature a series of details of everyday life in these illegal outposts in the West Bank.
