Creeping Things

Installation, 2009

Design, illustration and programming of an interactive installation for Jewish Museum Berlin.

»Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.«
The Book of Leviticus

A massive mirror, populated with insects generated by a computer greets visitors in a room of the »Kosher & Co« exhibition. Creeping and crawling they surround the reflections of the humans.
As people leave, the bodies of the insects come back together to form words: a quote from the Book of Leviticus that refers to the imperative of cleanliness in Jewish tradition.
