From Friends 3

Einat is an architect-planner and teacher based in Haifa.

Einat had sent me a video clip of a project of two of her students.

Its called: Bridging the Divide - The Separation Wall.

Presented by Mounir Totry, Amani Mansour.

The video seemed to be implicitly paraphrasing the celebrated Norwegian voyager Thor Heyerdahl's statement on borders:

"The Wall – I have seen one, but I have heard it doesn’t exist in the minds of some people."

All the more does this reaffirm that the most potent and powerful instrument of change today is - the imagination. Especially when the "reality" is like the image below, even as celebrations have begun to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
