Shadows from another place: TheWall is a locative media and web-based project that maps and overlays about 15-miles of the barrier/security wall being built in Israel and the Palestine Territories on selected U.S. and Canadian cities. Focussing on the area between Abu Dis in the south, and Qalandiya in the north, this segment of the wall represents only about 3% of the total structure that is currently being built there.
TheWall is a snapshot of time, place and circumstances using the web, locative, mobile and wireless technology inviting participants to imagine their cities reshaped by its presence.
There are three components:
Paula Levine is a visual artist working in locative media. Current projects use the web, cartography and GPS coordinates to reframe ties between the local and global. Her writings on locative media and expanding cartographic imagination have been presented at conferences at ISEA, ZERO1, MIT and the University of Wisconsin, Conney conference for Jewish Studies.
Her experimental videos have been shown in screenings in New York's Lincoln Centre, National Gallery of Canada, Europe and Japan, and in film and video festivals in the U.S and Canada.
