Nelson Mandela Is Dead – Saddam Hussein Killed Him – Or So Bush Says

I was watching this live on CNN, and was bumfuzzled for a second, but no worries, Mandela is alive and well, but not according to Bush’s press conference this morning:

I thought an interesting comment was made – somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, “Now, where’s Mandela?” Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.

I was very honored when the producers of the Machol Shalem Dance Festival asked me to create a video work exclusively for the event, and created a video installation consisting of seven different monitors, mixing 1940’s American instructional films, with electronic downtempo music as soundtrack.

The festival was held in the Gerard Behar Centre, Jerusalem, Israel and consisted of three evenings (November 14-16, 2006) of modern dance.

You can view the work in two versions – just the videos:
