Rotating stones is a reflection of a hike that led through deserted areas of the Negev and Wādī ʿAraba. Memories of lonely paths, far away and scattered by social contacts. Steps through stony, vegetation-less and vegetation-poor regions. Thoughts of exhaustion and lassitude, comparable to the uncertainty of the current pandemic situation. Social diversion and paths that lead in an unsuspecting direction. Rotating stones symbolise the cycle of nature. subtitled with a text passage from Philosoph Jiddu Krishnamurti.
