“In the 1970′s the Princeton physicist Gerard O’Neill with the help of NASA Ames Research Center and Stanford University held a series of space colony summer studies which explored the possibilities of humans living in giant orbiting spaceships. Colonies housing about 10,000 people were designed and a number of artistic renderings of the concepts were made.”
[A series of three images of two women progressively getting older, each holding a sign that remains consistent: the one on the left reading “I am a Palestinian Arab. I was born in Jerusalem. Palestine is my homeland, but I cannot return there” (except in the third it reads “I still cannot return there”). The women on the right holds a poster reading “I am an American Jew. I as born in the U.S.A.. Israel is notmy homeland, but I can “return” there”.]
That’s Ghada Karmi (Palestinian Arab) and Ellen Siegel (American Jew), and the first picture of of them protesting outside the Israeli Embassy in London, 1973. Recurring images are of them reuniting for these photographs after 40 (?) years of friendship. [x]
“Come with me, I’ll take you now to a place that you fear. For no reason why, your heart has turned away from me, and I will make you understand. Everything will become clear to you when you see things through another’s eyes. Everything will become clear to you whatever’s meant for you, you will find. Come with me, I’ll take you there to a place where you’ll see everything you need to be the one you need to be, and all of those things that you feared will disappear from you in time.”
