Employing the unique characteristics of obsolete technology, Harpaz creates what she terms "video and sculpture and the border between the two." Often verging on illusionary, these installations integrate intimate domestic objects with projections of light, photography and video. In All That Glitters, Harpaz broke a small pane of glass and mounted it in an autofocus slide projector. The slide projector then displayed a dazzling geometric abstraction on the wall that gently pulsed as the projector attempted to focus on the broken glass. The resulting work is an exquisite, living, moving image without the use of contemporary video technology.
Harpaz received her BFA and MFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. She currently lives and works in Tel Aviv. Harpaz was the 2009 recipient of the Israel Cultural Foundation Sharett Scholarship.
