This work includes old objects found in Kibbutz Hanita (located near the border between Israel and Lebanon), which relate to the ethos of settlement land cultivation. The planting of the objects in concrete blocks immobilized them and negated their function. Against this vertical movement, strings with nails were stretched from the objects horizontally by powerful magnets, resulting in a delicate and dramatic suspension of both physical and ideological forces.
