Freedom Border, 2003
One channel video installation, 3 min.
'Freedom Border' depicts the launching and flight of a small blimp, with cameras installed on its underside, which monitors the nation’s borders. The buoyancy of the blimp seems at odds with its ominous function — indeed, as it turns it momentarily resembles a bomb. The flight of the blimp is not staged by Bartana but is instead an ongoing military operation that attests to the ever-present threat of armed conflict in Israel.
