TELESCOPE
2010 / public space installation  

The installation was placed in a viewing point of Lublin. It was an object resembling a telescope which people use to watch the distant parts of their city. In fact, it allowed the user to reach much farther. Thanks to a monitor hidden in its body, the user was able to see the distant coast of Israel. From time to time, people walking along the harbour of the distant land were waving warmly towards the viewer.

The project addresses the relations between nations that share a difficult piece of history, which influences the way the new generations look upon each other. The telescope put its audience in the uncomfortable situation of near personal interaction with a person of a different nation thus forcing an unplanned and maybe unwanted contact.
