About the Video “3 steps”

The piece displays the quiet undertones of Tel Aviv life, and points out the various textures which define it: Alienation, quiet, restlessness, loneliness, movement, anxieties, human landscape vs. urban nature.

3 Steps follows the elements which fill the urban space.

The tree-lined boulevards. The people constantly roaming the streets, destinations unknown. Trees fighting for space against the backdrop of constant construction.

The passive fight of nature against the city’s constant tendency to expand and choke the space.

The artist combines digitally-processed still street scenes – and together displays the quiet atmosphere alongside the urban intensity.

Ray-V – Revital Elkayam, is a graduate of Camera Obscura Film school;

An active video- and Live video-artist for the past 9 years, in Israel and abroad.

Ray-V created live video installations and preformed live with her video content in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Bulgaria, The Czech Republic and more.
