House of Cards – Jerusalem

The HOUSE OF CARDS is our new light installation that travels around the globe, in each city it will be different, displaying different sets of cards … Currently the House of Cards is shown at the Old City of Jerusalem (Hurva Square) at the 6th Light in Jerusalem Festival (June 2014). 126 cards have been stacked upon each other and create a 10 x 7 x 5 m big structure that is charmingly white and clean at daytime and turns into a light spectacle at night. The deck of cards present Biblical Figures, illustrated by Jean David in the 1970 for ElAl Airlines. These cards are so beautiful that we simply had to pile them up… :)
