ליבי במזרח ואנוכי בסוף מערב
My heart is in the east, and I in the uttermost west.
Yehuda Halevy [1075-1141] wrote these lines in Spain about his longing to Jerusalem.
My longing to Japan is round around planet earth, from 32’ to 35’ where Kyoto is.
Pilgrims gather stamps from temples they arrive at- into their shrine stamp book.
My path east is marked by Japanese ink and brush on washi paper into a visual text.
When my stamp book is displayed upon a mirror, the Cypress trees become boats with masts.
It can be read from right to left or vice versa.
It can be read from Sky to Earth and vice versa.
The round longing line hugging planet earth is constant.
When despalyed on a mirror: 140X30X15cm.
