POINT OF VIEW
Saron Paz and Matthew Passmore (2018)
"Point of View," conceived of by Israeli experience designer Saron Paz and designed by Bay Area artist Matthew Passmore, is a synthesis of art, experience and technology. The project is comprised of two identical sculptures, evocative of lighthouse towers, placed along the waterfront of each city. Within each sculpture is a customized periscope that connects to a camera that captures a live feed view of the other city from across the world and can be controlled by a single viewer and shared by all. This project was made possible by the Haifa Sister City Committee.
Best Viewing: 24/7
