Midbar Installation

Midbar is an audio-visual interactive art installation that includes augmented reality and other fun, immersive technologies. In Midbar, the audience will experience a 15-minute interactive adventure about immigration and relocation. The narrator guides visitors through the installation from an exciting desert in Israel to Miami Beach and all that using immersive projections and sounds. Rachel Joy Weiss is a renowned multidisciplinary artist. For this installation, she was inspired by her own relocation to the United States as well as the verses by a medieval Spanish Jewish poet Judah (Yehuda) Halevi, who wrote: “My heart is in the East, but I am in the West.”
