About Hamakom: The Hebrew word המקום (“hamakom”) translates literally as “The Place,” but this hardly captures its many interpretations. The usage ranges from one of the 100+ metaphors for invoking god in the biblical & rabbinic literature, to an Instagram hashtag popular with Israeli teenagers posting from pretty waterfalls, intent on invoking FOMO. This work is from a series that uses the concept of hamakom as departure point to study the shifting concept of place.
