Red Light/Red Heat
2006, 5:30 min, color, sound


Just like the hero of Taxi Driver, so is the rider, a mythical figure of a searcher which the artist had invented in order to move in the area between life and art. The figure has its space but the rider needs his route. The gaze through the psychedelic colors of the Negative effect and the original soundtrack composed by David Shalit in relation to My Favorite Things, turn the ride in the familiar city into the possibility of being in the 'Other Place'. [Merav S. Ben Alon]

Original soundtrack by David Shalit
