The Dead Sea: Art in Contested Space

Just a quick update from my field research in the West Bank. As I mentioned in class I’m working with a film team that are using virtual reality and immersive film as an experimental peace building tool. We did a visit to an abandoned resort on the coast of the Dead Sea yesterday to explore some visually fractured spaces related to the conflict, and we discovered some interesting art work. I’ve attached a video here to show you some of it, and explain why we think it is interesting. Apologies for the rough edit, I’ll hopefully be able to show you something a bit more sophisticated from the project later. Hope you enjoy!
