Cookie and Josef are brother and sister who have always been inseparable. Cookie tries to resemble Josef in an attempt to perpetuate their childhood bond. Josef escapes Cookie’s imposed claustrophobia when he finds a lover in Noga and devotes his attention to her. Cookie, left alone, turns her infantile attempt of imprisoning Josef into a creative project. Milk, play and personal photos all become raw materials that guide the film ultimately lifting Cookie to a sublime state of maturity and new independence.

Under the table describes my very fragile relationship with my father, comparing our journey to the 7 days of creation as told in Genesis, which we study together regularly. Challenged by intergenerational issues, differing religious values and his re-marriage, the delicate father- daughter bond is proved strong with loving devotion and respect.

The work deals with the image of a man falling to his death in the September 11th attacks in New York. Fascinated by the limited choice of deciding how he would die, and the beauty of the vertical lines in the photograph taken by Richard Drew, we wanted to give a sense of motion, time and spirituality to the piece.
