Jerusalem Festival of Light 2014: “Control No Control” and “Don’t Give Up on the Light”

Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 26, 2014


“Control No Control” (Daniel Iregui, Canada) is an interactive installation that reacts to touch. I found the heavy bass techno sound track a bit monotonous but the lighting effects were interesting.



The array of hands touching the surface caught my attention, like a strange, multi-dexterous octopus playing the piano.


“Don’t Give Up on the Light” (Shelly Bin Nun, Israel) is a clever sculpture constructed of trash, casting a shadow of Jerusalem landmarks.


The use of cut-outs to create the illusion of three dimensions is clever. For example, the highlight on the Dome of the Rock is created by cutting a piece out of a plastic disposable plate.

      Thanks! The one year I wasn’t able to go to the festival (we were on vacation in Italy two years ago), I really missed it!
