Through the use of talkbacks I exposed the hate within our country. The difference in people and how we cannot find a way to accept it was presented in this visual concept for an online gallery as part of Tisha B'Av occasion at Jerusalem.
Nowadays, the words takes a different meaning. Thanks to them we can communicate and say all our hearts, without much effort and even without uttering a word. The media, including the Internet, opened a platform for democracy and allowed anyone to protest their silent protest without rising from the chair. Each person's personal opinion is joined by a heterogeneous web of opinions, which in one way or another represent the people's hearts and cracks. 
The anonymity that is possible by talkbacks, enables to write without any barriers and brings out all the anger, feelings of hatred and pain that that accompany the people. I will not ignore the fact that there is also a lot of positive and formative activity in writing the talkbacks, consultations, sharing difficulties and secrets that the anonymity of writing allows the writer to express to the readers. But unfortunately, hatred has a strong unbearable power. Even when a positive headline sometimes appears, it becomes transparent and loses its power alongside all the negative headlines, and after a few minutes of reading our minds are washed away with curses, revelations of hatred between parties and various factions in the people. Hatred that is behind the scenes, hatred of people who care about what is happening here, but in order to convey the message they are looking for extreme and blatant ways to get the attention of other readers.
The national hobby of talkback writing has created a real language, which includes color codes, typos, excessive keyboard marks, imaginary aliases, with the goal of highlighting as much as possible. In writing the script, I dismantled and reconnected talkback titles from recent years. I chose letters, punctuation marks and feelings that accompanied me in reading, as tools for discussing the burning issues among us, such as: politics, religious and secular, gays, and the relentless debate about democracy and freedom of speaking.
