Made for Machines by Machines

Collage with themes of alienation and industrialization

This work was made for a zine as part of a workshop in summer 2021. The zine, titled It Won't Be Fun Here, attempted to document the sights and ideas I absorbed and the feelings I felt during that summer, living in Jerusalem for my studies. The collage is made from images, textures and typography that I thought capture a feeling of alienation, and a certain urban desolation and anxiety, that is caused by living in an age of mass production and communication. A scan of this collage, with additional editing, consisted of a page in the zine.

Graduation Year





I’m a student of visual communication at Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem. My work is mostly based around graphic design, but also includes printmaking, collages, photography and zines. My main interests and inspirations are graphic design from different eras, especially design from the 80s-90s, and typography; Art including abstract art, installation, collage, photography and prints, among others; Music and music cover artwork, especially electronic music and different alternative rock genres; Architecture such as Bauhaus architecture and brutalism; And other fields such as illustration.
In my work I try to communicate concepts, feelings and atmospheres I relate to or find meaningful. Sometimes I try to create a sense of mystery or obliqueness, other times, of clarity. But generally it tends to be on the border of abstract and concrete, and of emotional and conceptual. I mix digital techniques with analog ones – mostly drawing and collages. I am fascinated by print techniques and do works such as zines, posters, t-shirts and even a book, with methods including screen printing, risograph and digital printing.

This collage was made from materials found in old books, and scraps from previous works of mine and of friends. I then scanned it, edited it slightly, and it was printed on one of the zine's pages with a riso printer, using black and red ink only. This work is the original from which the image for the zine was created.
