Homage to Simonides (46.5x76 inches, 2,500 frames), photographed in the Austrian Hospice, a mid-19th century building, in the Old City of Jerusalem. This work is a tribute to the Greek poet Simonides, known as the inventor of the Art of Memory. This method is based on creating mental structures (real, imaginary or both) and placing symbolic objects in them, standing for the things we wish to remember, thus building a palace of memory.
