In November 2008, Mumbai suffered a atrocious terror attack that took the life of 170 people.
One of the targets was Chabad House – The Nariman House, where rabbis Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg were killed along with four of their guests.
We wish to tell their story and expose visitors to the following topics:
o What is the Chabad movement ?
o Emissaries (shluchim) and their work in Mumbai and worldwide . o Local and global terrorism – evil and darkness wash over our lives. o Light and hope eliminate the darkness. o The Seven Laws of Noah and the seven colors of the rainbow – the true test of basic universal morality – those who follow the Laws will bring good and light into the world
A video art stabilizer that will be projected onto LED screens through a water curtain and accompanied by a specially written musical piece.
Main motifs in the stabilizer:
Water as matter and water as a symbol of life and existence.
The transparency and multilayered element of the layers of life. The reflection and blurring of boundaries between the existing and the similarity between dream and vision, reality and fulfillment.
Reflection of the reflection in the pool in the floor and in the ceiling - the phenomenon of infinity and spatial multiplicity.
The penetration of the plains of the hard physical space and their division into light and water.
The lack of sharpness of the projected images - an expression of the fog of thought and imagination.
The steady flow rate of never-ending activity increases with the sound of flowing water.
Images of people, buildings, landscapes of the Israeli environment are interwoven with graphic motifs projected together on a semi-transparent surface in three layers.
The stabilizer will be located in the entrance lobby and will become an integral part of the entrance experience and will serve as an artistic salute to a person who was so identified with the company, its employees and its clientele.
