Ethnic Forced Displacement // Jahalin Bedouins

Yo FG peepol,

ultra inspiring and real at the same time photography found on the profile of Giuliano Camarda (link)

The Arab al-Jahalin is the biggest bedouin community that lives in the desert between Jerusalem and Jericho. This part of the West Bank is called Area C, where Israel retains control over security as well as planning and zoning, and holds strategic significance for further expansion of illegal Israeli settlements.
The bedouins live in miserable shacks, without electricity or running water, grazing their sheeps between debris and dreaming of the flourishing desert of Beersheva, where theyíve been forcefully evicted, across the
1949 armistice lines by Israeli authorities.

In the last 15 years the Bedouin communities have been subject to demolition, requisition of cattle, attacks by settlers, aimed to get away from the area. But despite this, the communities have shown determination and unbelievable resilience, who led the Israeli military authorities to draw up a “relocation” plan, presented last October. Ignoring the aspirations, needs, traditions and the system of relations inherent in the Bedouin culture, the plan provides the deportation and a forced establishment of the Jahalin tribe next to the Abu Dis rubbish dump. For other Bedouins living in the Jordan Valley is expected a similar fate, with the creation of a complex near Nabi Musa.

A Room for London // The Boat

The design

The vision behind the boat

Living Architecture is an organisation which asks some of the best architects in the world to design houses that you can rent for a holiday in a variety of places around the UK.

To celebrate the Olympic year of 2012, Living Architecture decided to commission a temporary building for the capital. The one-bedroom boat, the Roi des Belges, by David Kohn Architects in collaboration with Fiona Banner was picked as the winner in an open competition run by Living Architecture and Artangel, in association with the Southbank Centre. Five hundred architects and artists from around the world submitted entries. The competition guidelines asked for a building that would allow guests to spend a truly unique night perched above the river and the judges were profoundly impressed by the imagination and skill with which the brief was interpreted by the winning team.

David Kohn and Fiona Banner drew inspiration from the riverboat, the Roi des Belges, captained by Joseph Conrad whilst in the Congo in 1890, a journey echoed in his most famous work Heart of Darkness.

Perched high above the city, this beautifully crafted space offers a unique and playful perspective on an area of London more commonly seen from river level. With an en-suite double bedroom, kitchenette, library and viewing deck, guests are invited to rest and reflect upon what they see and hear during their one night stay; logging their thoughts, observing cloud patterns, the character of the river and deeper undercurrents.

There are hints that the boat may have come from very far away, and could – once its sojourn on the Southbank Centre is finished – move off to other destinations. The boat is of no distinct era in terms of its style, neither recognisably modern nor old-fashioned. Instead, with its combination of painted wood and hand-worked gold and silver coated metals, it seems to echo the simplicity of a Japanese tea-hut or the rural haphazard quality of a midwestern farm building. On the bridge, the boat is equipped with an array of tools for recording the experience of staying there. As well as a log book to write down observations, there are guides to clouds and tides, seagulls and train-lines, London architecture and history.

A one-night stay in the room is designed as a complete break from the ordinary, a rare moment to stand aside from life and contemplate it anew with the help of a great city and a piece of architecture that stimulates and enchants all one’s senses.

Rear Window \\ Visual Installation

based on footage from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” (1954)

 Jeff Desom( freelance director, film maker),

introduced a project that took him 6 weeks for completeness as a final time-lapse video

Software used: After Effects / Photoshop / Coffee

REAR WINDOW

”I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.”
