Video Art: A Lamp of G-d is a Man's Soul



light 8light 7light 1



An important source of inspiration are
Kabbalah teachings about the "lights",
relating them to the Sephirot
or emanations of the soul.

Each of the modules is constructed
with a special
color scheme and visual dance
which correlates to ideas
about the specific Sephirot.

An added input is a meditation
suggested by the great Safad kabbalist

of the 15th century, the Holy Ari (Luria),
which is to visualize in the flames
upon lighting the candles each night
a marriage or "zivug"
of the letter nun
נ in the Shamash,
with the last eight letters
of the Hebrew alphabet:
the first night
נ-ס,
the second night
נ-ע and so on.
All of the eight consecutive combinations
make a two-letter word in Hebrew
(itself a rare occurrence).
Somehow these two letter "words"
do mysteriously appear
in the modules and not because
of any premeditation on my part.
