My current site-specific art project is intervening in the time lines of actual Tells [mounds] and archaeological sites around the Mediterranean. I am visiting the Naples National Archaeological Museum– you are welcome to the tour.
When the guard at the National Archaeological Museum leaves the room- I quickly photograph a ceramic key to Alexandria’s library next to the dice I fancy.
There is not much light, and I wish I could really touch them.
At night, I read John Williams book- Augustus, just translated to Hebrew. I read the pages describing how Augustus enthusiastically throws dice aiming to make practical decisions!
If he managed an Empire, perhaps the dice, I am throwing in this Blog as artwork, aiming towards a Biennale concerning ancient Alexandria’s library – will realize after all!
I fall asleep. In my dream, I am six years-old throwing my five square stones on the cool floor at my parent’s home.
