"To make the series 38 Days of Re-collection, I subleased a house in Jerusalem from an Israeli family––one of the countless houses that was taken in 1948 to make room for Israeli settlers. I lived there for thirty eight days, and I im- mediately found myself searching for traces of the original Palestinian owners. I photographed every possible detail. Later, I collected the pieces of paint peeling off the walls of Old City houses, including the home I was born in. The digital photographs I made in the occupied house were then converted into black and white negatives. In the dark- room, I spread light sensitive photo emulsion onto the paint fragments and printed the images from the negatives on them."
