Sculpture of the day
From the 25th of February until the 15th of May 1992 i made and exhibited one sculpture every day. The sculptures were shown on a dedicated shelf at the Artists' House in Jerusalem.
All together I made 65 pieces and guest artists made another 10 while I was on a two week vacation.
Each day's sculpture was photographed with an polaroid instant camera. Some of the images (such as the first five) have been lost, and some of the objects could not be photographed.
