After many years of sketching people while traveling around and as part of my daily commute, I found myself wondering about the stories that might hide behind them.
As a result I started drawing their potential lives and the thoughts that might be going on in their heads. These drawings became the interactive installations in my solo exhibition Familiar Stranger.
It got the support from the Israeli culture fund of Mifal Hapais and premiered at Mamuta Art and Research Center in Jerusalem.
