Yael Kanarek, Artist, New York

And I was Both Tongues




November 5, 2007; 61 Minutes; Video

Yael Kanarek has developed a unique vocabulary of artistic networked interfaces that combine photography, graphics, hypertext, sculpture, and performance. Kanarek generates complex networked “story spaces” that combine multiple media forms with multiple languages, including Hebrew and Arabic. Online visitors move through and explore charged issues of land, space, and language. Recognizing that languages shape space by defining cultural territory and sovereignty, Kanarek explores the question of space on the internet.

Kanarek presents several of her award-winning net art projects, including her most recent net art project, Object of Desire, accessible through the Jewish Museum in New York, and her installation Warm Fields, exhibited at the bitforms gallery, where a dynamic physical space is constructed with formalistic tools of configuration, shape, and shadow.
