8 BIT EMBROIDERED PROPHET - PILLOW OF ELIJAH
This wonderful embroidered pillow or wall hanging looks like an 8 bit video game, perhaps a splash screen from the first Zelda or Miracle Warriors (Sega System Fans?).
In fact, depicts Elijah the prophet, a wonderworker in his own time, just beyond the gates of Jerusalem.  Elijah legendarily was sucked up to heaven in a whirlwind — or on a chariot — and occasionally visits the earth.  In Jewish tradition his appearance is supposed to harken the coming of messianic times.

WISH WE HAD THIS PLATE
If you could make a Seder plate, or any kind of Judaica, what would it be?
Passover has already passed us over, but it’s not too late for us to admire this fantastic seder plate created by Morgan Levine, who happens to be the sister of YUM’s curator. Check out his post below, and follow him at zcurator.tumblr.com.
Thanks zcurator!

SEDER PLATE FANTASTIC - PLATE
This wonderful Seder plate, created by crafting/pottery phenom (and my sister) Morgan Levine was central to our family’s Seder - the ritual, interactive meal during which Jews re-enact the exodus from Egypt.  
Morgan wanted to produce a version of this plate for years, but doing so presented a surprising number of technical conundrums. It was only thanks to some fruitful collaborations at Maine’s Haystack, the famed ‘summer camp for artists,’ that Morgan was able to produce this otherwise light and airy piece. 
Can’t wait to use it next year!
Thanks morganlevine!

The Seder plate I made last summer making its debut. Happy Passover!!

STRING VORTEX - FROM IT’S A THIN LINE

I’m working on a program with a colleague on my current exhibition, It’s a Thin Line - the Eruv and Jewish Community in New York and Beyond, and I’ve been trying to find an image for the program.  I started working with a shot of one of the art pieces in the gallery, and had a little fun with one of the pictures.  The piece, extruded (an eruv project)by New York artist R. Justin Stewart, is a timeline and map of Manhattan Eruvs from 1907 - 2012. 

This image, taken from the bottom of the sculpture, makes the thousands of strings that comprise the pieces look like a frame from 2001: A Space Odyssey — good or bad.    Anyway, just a little fun, but here’s an image of the original:
