Mound Hacker-Pompeii, Italy

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 Pompeii.

The Vesuvius is everywhere, you can’t miss it.

It is a reminder, silently awaiting there. It is a reference point, beginning and end to History and living here today too.

My mother calls. I am surprised to realize I was already here when I was 4 years old!

Our ship moored at Naples as we took a trip to Pompeii. The white plaster figures do seem familiar, perhaps from art books.

At the evening we have a great Italian dinner. The waiter suggests Vesuvius wine.

A ceramic shard from Israel – a key to Alexandria library is left at one of the houses.

Is it a blocked window?

I am thinking of the Jewish custom to leave a stone on a grave.
