Bezalel Academy graduation project


The book contains four stories, each focused on a different city and a different local species: Hyrax in Arad, Jackals in Tel-Aviv, Gazelles in Jerusalem, and one striped hyena from Modi'in. Each story expresses a different facet of urbanity, nature, and the overlap between the two. Meeting wildlife in urban environments can ignite strong feelings, such as fear, wonder, excitement or anxiety; It can spark thoughts about our part and place on the planet. The pencil illustrations serve as a tool for reconstructing these feelings and thoughts, opening a window for interpretation, for thought and for imagination.
