Video, 7'. 2010, Ramallah
The virtual conflict relays on two parts: the first part is purely documentary on in the West Bank city of Nablus, where the filming is taking place in one of resistance force members house, who got killed by the Israeli soldiers at his home. The second part is filmed in the same day on the border of West Bank city of Tulkarm and Netanya in Israel.
Tom tells an event that did not happen to him, but happened to me– Tom has never visited Cairo, but he tells the story from the virtual perspective of what is screened on TV and what the fact according to what he has deducted by the end.
And this is what is shown on the screen: I had never predicted entering the house of one of the martyrs, standing with some Israeli soldiers for long to exchange jocks. Before all these events were semi virtual news that I watched on News bulletins.
The contrabass player is linking the dramatic crescendo of the events as the music loses its meaning without the performance of musician or rather because he plays with a very noisy way.
