A unique artist book based on a personal theme; the everyday things I missed during my first year as an international student in London. Things that are so obvious to us that we don’t realise how important and meaningful they are until we can’t have them. I chose Hebrew, my native language, as the main feature in the book, taking letters from the Hebrew alphabet. On one side, each letter forms the basis of a pattern. On the other side, the letter patterns are integrated into squares to create a rich and colourful mix of my experiences. The text forms a short poem describing the things I miss and reinforcing the images. The final outcome is a book which unfolds, gradually revealing new aspects of longing, to become a poster.
