- I didn't have a good enough photo of it.
- It wasn't worthy - in which case you should want to improve it, hand it in, and get the class to give you an opinion.

You reached my daughter's e-mail, who is also an offspring of one holocaust survivor - me.
I work with her and so read your e-mail, and after many years got the urge today to respond with my story.
I was born in October 1938 to Lea (Weitzman) and Avraham Grossberg from Staszow, a small village in Poland. My young parents had the courage and resourcefulness to give me to a Polish woman and pay her to keep me through the war, in the promise that she will get paid also after the war.
My whole family from both sides was murdered only three (second and a more remote) cousins survived. After the war I was adopted in Poland by two survivors Mania Bornstein and Ben-Zion Burstein, each a sole survivor of their intimate families (both were married Mania had one child and the Ben-Zion had two children), as well as their original families, none for Ben-Zion and only three nephews and one daughter of a nephew from 10 brothers and sisters in the case of Mania. All of her brothers and sisters were with families as she and her twin were the youngest (don't know details about Ben-Zion).
When we arrived to Israel in 1950, I was a 12 years old girl and wanted to forget all the past and be just like the other kids, mainly to imitate the native children, meaning try to be like a "sabra" and not a frightened diaspora survivor. Therefore I did not asked too many questions and was even ashamed to talk about it.
My adoptive parents talked very little of the holocaust as well. I tried with all my might to suppress all and till now did not even visit Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Now I regret I did not ask more and tried to know more because of my children (I have three: Lee-Bath, Nirith and Ben).
Recently I learned that a neighbour of ours from Staszow survived, he fled as a young boy and joined the partizans and lives currently in Toronto. But he is old now and remembers little to tell me. I hope to meet with him as he has a relative in Israel and promised to contact me when he comes.
Maybe this is too long for my testimony, so if you send it to someone feel free to shorten it.
With thanks and best wishes for the coming New Year
Sincerely, Hannah Nelson
PS: A very impressive and smart cartoon.
Seeing as Hannah bothered to write down her testimony I think I had no choice but to publish it.

My father's name is Felix Darnell and he is eighty six years old.
My name is Mike Darnell and I am thirty two years old,making me probably one of the youngest people in the world belonging to the generation born to survivors of the Second World War.
Although born in Germany in 1920 my father had the good fortune of being sent to England by his parents in 1933, where he was joined by them slightly before Kristallnacht.
My father's family was spared the horrors of the Holocaust due to the simple fact that on a planned visit to my father in England, the atrocities commited in Germany reached a level that frightened my grandmother so much she refused to return home.
In 1942 my father, after spending a year together with my grandfather and nearly 2000 other Jewish German nationals, in an internment camp for "Enemy Aliens" situated in Hay - Australia, was released and allowed to join the British army after the British finally realized that the Jewish German inmates of the camp were not at any risk of serving as a fifth column for the Nazi regime.
The 1997 Jewish prisoners held at Hay are known as the "Duneira boys" and sadly fewer of them remain among us every year.
It was as a British soldier that my father entered Bergen Belsen on the 16.4.1945.
He marks the day in his diary every year but never talks about it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War ended and my father's generation is passing from this world.
With the Iranian regime, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth" it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets the facts of this shameful episode in it's history because those who forget their past are condemned to repeat it.
I recieved this e-mail, added my personal story, and am forwarding it to you so that we can together create a chain of testimonies - irrefutable evidence - in memory of the six million Jews, and five million non Jews who were massacred by the Nazi regime, before and during the Second World War. We can learn from our mistakes and avoid another Holocaust as long as we keep the memory of it's terror alive.
Non Jewish victims of the Holocaust:
Testimony to the liberation of Bergen Belsen:http://www.scrapbookpages.com/BergenBelsen/BergenBelsen05.html
The Duneira boys:
Please join us by giving testimony, e-mail it to your friends, and become a link in the Holocaust memorial chain.
This is my sworn testimony.

- The presentation of the object should give an indication of the feelings and meaning that this object has for you.
- You are expected to start giving more thought to the cpomposition and design of youur presentations.
- the presentation should have separate 2D and a 3D components.
Final presentation of your window on a color is for next Thursday - 21.12.06.
Sunday, December 10, 2006
This is a quick exercise which is meant to allow you to continu working on your color projects.
- Select an object that you can get three copies of. Leave one copy as a reference.
- Change one of the copy's color so as to give the object a new meaning.
- Change one of the copy's texture so as to give the object a new meaning.

Sitting in the library near to the computer , reading MARTI GUIXE book with his sketches(H20 gallery Berlin), becouse i have idea that i dont like sketches by the reason i have no skill to draw by pen.
This guy, Marty, he is reallly great. He is not connected to any design rules.
Hes just watching on his own life and repairing the thing around him for more time-updated and interest-updated form of being. And he is dont care about what design world is.
Maybe this is more personal way to explore design..but rules,rules,rules.
lesson was terrible, im really in a decay before-and-after, My decaying will finish only when i will understood how to think about what i want to do.
Becouse i think that all my time i spend on not effective work about projects of your course.
Ough, beside all this gibberish chit
- i have question- could you write for us a 200 termins,words in hebrew which used when we working verbally with design(on classes, auditoriums, presentations). i know it is not your business, but our hebrew teacher refused by the reason that she is not connected to the design.
- My blog is http://miostyle.livejournal.com/ i expose there my works from what im doing now, which will not blaming me
Thinking "..this design school maybe just not a place for someone from our group"

I'm not really sure I understand your argument. Are you trying to praise a lack of education? ignorance?
Is the experience of a single designer, talented though he may be, enough to throw out all conventional wisdom through the window?
Did you notice that Mr. Guixe's work, unique and subverssive as it is, is always presented in the most aesthetic and correct compositions possible?
Are you aware of the Mr. Guixe's progression over time? - The reason he could formulate his "Ex-Designer" philosophy is exactly because he is a master designer and deeply in touch with all the terms we are learning in class.
Marti Guixe's Website:
Article published regarding Mr Guixe's work:
The picture posted in this entry is of Marti Guixe's "Football Tape : Adhesive tape with a football pattern. Allows you to construct footballs. Works better if you stuff them with sports publications..."
Mr. Guixe can create a Gestalt vision of design because he is very much aware of what is around him, what came before him, how to make what he has to say interesting without the use of words and without being in the room, etc.
I think, dear Roman, that the time has come to wake up, and to realize that without hard work it is impossile to get results. You can start by creating a list of 200 design terms in hebrew with translations into English, Russian, French and Spanish.
You are absolutely correct in thinking that design school isn't the place for some of the people from our group. I feel the same way. However, I intend to give them a chance to prove me wrong until the last day of the semester, when I review the final panel presentations. Also,I intend to spend the time we have together until that day to do whatever it takes to help these people become designers, even if it isn't always pleasant...
Mike PS. I checked you blog out - very good work, I wish you would bring the same energy to our class.

Glenn Feron - The Art of Retouching
Hope you are all hard at work on your projects. Still no calls or emails from anyone so i'm a bit worried...
On Thursday you re required to be at the Mediatheque at 13:00 oclock - make sure to get your tickets from Sandrine.
All the best,
Thursday, November 23, 2006
You have been assigned a color, which you have started investigating through:Music, Food, Clothes, A story / film / book, Paintings Etc. You have selected a persona to work with as well.
Presentation 1 - Research Story Board – 27.11.06
Create a presentation of your research into the persona of your choice and of a storyboard (storyboard according to your own interpretation) of how this persona relates to the objects and the color of your choice. The storyboard can be a poster, a Powerpoint presentation, an animation clip or any other type of presentation THAT COMMUNICATES YOUR THEME.
Presentation 2 – Holon's Colored Light District - 4.12.06
Amsterdam is famous for it's Red Light District – where through the hazy red light one can glimpse in the windows all sorts of fantasies for sale...What sort of fantasy is your persona offering us in the colored light of it's window?
- You are academic students – research is a serious thing...
- Create sketches (drawings, small models) before actually creating your final piece – display these trials as part of your presentation.
- You are required to communicate a theme to the observer – does your presentation achieve the goal of communicating.
- Place you work in class or outside of it at the beginning of the lesson in a dignified manner that will maximize it's effect. The presentation is also part of the exercise.
- You are FREE – try and take advantage of this important right you have.
- DETAILS – everything counts even in small amounts, don't let your piece suffer because of crappy craftsmanship.
Wednesday, November 22, 2006
You have each been assigned a color.
You were required to bring to class the following:
- Music relating to the color
- An article of clothing relating to the color
- Food relating to the color
- A book relating to the color
You are now all required to research a character, historical figure, celebrity, who relateto your color and create a story involving this person and relating to all the objects above, and more.
For Thursday I expect to see good solid beginnings of this research - you do not need to have your full presentation ready but you MUST have sketchs, photos, a storyboard, materials, etc.
We will have a studio class on Thursday - meaning that we will be working in class and I will be sitting with each of you personally to help you with your work. I expect you not to waste our time together...
This is a link to the Color Theory presentation I gave last lesson.

i dont know how good these people are but solidarity requires that i help promote...
Picasa - Google's free image management software, which you can download here.
I strongly recommend using Picasa especially for your Blogger based Blog because Picasa and Blogger are fully integrated. You can upload photographic content to your Blog directly from Picasa and all the image manipulation (resize, etc.) can be done automatically - that's how i uploaded the picture on this page (just an example and of no importance besides.
Now that I have given you an even simpler turn you no longer have any excuses...

Today you are going to be involoved in the presentations you have all prepared for "Cover" and I must say I am quite excited to see what you have all come up with.
The following are links to Israeli Forums and E-Zines dealing with Art and Culture, FYI:
Ynet's art forum - with over 400 active participants, by far Israel's largest Art forum. Mostly amateur work but some professionals as well. The members of this forum have organized a number of exhibitions over time.
Maarav.org.il - Art, Culture, Media. A vibrant and exciting site dealing often with the cutting edge and the fringes.
1909.co.il - This is more of a souped up Blog, to my taste, than an actual site, but has some original and interesting (if somewhat eclectic) content. Check it out.
The above image of mine is called 72 Virgins and is related to a bit of a discussion about Israeil Erotica that I am trying to provoke through my activities in the Dex community. My goal is to try and arrange an exhibition of Israeli Erotica. To see what all the buzz is about enter the community here (It's all hebrew - sorry). Other work of mine can be seen on my gallery at Dex.
Thats all for now, see you soon.

Deborah asked if I could upload the presentation I gave about Xenophobia.
Well - Here it is
I hope you find it useful.
The image I posted here is an original by myself called Kapital Socialism.
The image refers to the saddening fact that my beloved cranes are the harbringers of doom for all that is old and true and are in fact the Blitzkreig soldiers of the Capitalist Real Estate empire.

Using materials of your choice create a single black and white structure based on one or more of the collages you created in the last assignment and conveying an emotion of your choice.
Bring the collages on which you based you structure to class and display them near your structure.
- What is the relationship between your 2D and 3D presentations?
- Are you taking full advantage of the possibilities that a 3D structure enables?
- Create sketches (drawings, small models) before actually creating your final piece – display these trials as part of your presentation.
- Examine your creation from various angles – what new information do we learn by studying the structure from different angles.
- This exercise deals with the fundamental elements of all 2D and 3D discussions
- Place you work in class at the beginning of the lesson in a dignified manner that will maximize it's effect. The presentation is also part of the exercise.

Four 40cm*40cm sheets of 180/240 gr' Bristol paper.
Using an unlimited number of cutout forms of lines and points create two black and white collages conveying two different emotions of your choice.
Create two black and white compositions , conveying two different emotions of your choice, with only 3 points and 3 lines MAXIMUM for both compositions. You may divide the shapes between the formats as you wish. You may use any technique you wish.
- Remember what we discussed in the class.
- Is it possible to create a mood within such restrictions?
- You are handing in four formats. What is the connection between them?
- Notice the relationship between your work and the format – use it to your benefit.
- Create a number of sketches before actually creating your final pieces – display these trials as part of your presentation.
- Examine your creations from various distances – what effect do they achieve at different viewpoints?
- This exercise deals with the fundamental elements of all 2D and 3D discussions
- Hang you work in class at the beginning of the lesson in a dignified manner that will maximize it's effect. The presentation is also part of the exercise.

ארבעה בריסטולים, 180/240 גר', בגודל 40x40 סמ'. צמד אחד בריסטול לבן, צמד שני בריסטול שחור.
על גבי הפורמטים, בעזרת צורות גאומטריות משלושה סוגים:
מרובעים בעלי זויות ישרות (רבועים או מלבנים), עיגולים, משולשים, יש לבצע קומפוזיציות עפ"י הכללים הבאים:
על גבי הבריסטול הלבן יש לעבוד עם צורות שחורות. ועל גבי הבריסטול השחור יש לעבוד עם צורות לבנות.
בכל צמד יש לייצר קומפוזיציה אחת בה יש שימוש בצורה אחת מכל סוג וקומפוזיציה אחת בה אין הגבלה על כמות הצורות המופיעות.
ליישם בהרכבת הקומפוזיציה עקרונות שהוזכרו בדיון האחרון:
דינאמיות / סטטאטיות.
התחלה - אמצע – סוף.
דגש - מוקד עניין.
קצב – הרמוניה / דיסהרמוניה
שימו לב להשפעת צבע הפורמט על אופי העבודה.
בדקו האם הקומפוזיציה שלכם מעניינת.
ודאו כי העבודה עשויה כהלכה.
Yes, Yes, Yana has a blog...
I hope It's not full of nasty things about me : - (
It's all in Russian...
Now all you all need to do is start posting you work on your Blogs and my world will be perfect...
One sheet of sketch paper 100cm*70cm
Two sheets of Bristol paper 30cm*30cm
Using a pencil draw on a sheet of sketch paper, 100cm*70cm in size, a continuous line describing your trip to Israel.
Select one portion of the line that you feel is Static and one portion of the line that you feel is Dynamic.
Frame each section with a 25cm*25cm square drawn with a fine black pen on the sketch paper.
Copy and enlarge these lines on two separate sheets of bristol 40cm*40cm in size using a black medium of your choice (pencils, pens, ink, brushes, etc.)
Notice the relationship between your line and the format.
The creation of a line also defines the space surrounding the line.
Create a number of sketches for the line, test a number of options for each enlargement – display these trials as part of your presentation.
Examine your creation from various distances – what effect does it achieve at different viewpoints?
I wish you a fruitful and fun semester!!!

Next week we finally start studying.
I can't tell you how excited I am.
I hope you are too.
We will be learning in class 201 in the Design school's building on Mondays (0900-1300) and Thursdays (1400-1800).
For our first meeting all you need to bring is a pencil, a black pen, a ruler, and a few 100cm*70cm sheets of paper (the cheapest kind possible).
I just spoke to Sandrine and we both wish to make the following clarification:
You are all required to attend the Foundations of Design course. Those of you who have advanced knowledge will be given assignments suitable for your level.
I'm very disappointed to say that only five students bothered to send over their course choices.
Don't come crying to me when your applications get denied...
I'm also not very pleased with the Blog progress. So far only Benjamin and Maya have opened up Blogs like I requested.
But this will all change soon enough,
Friday, September 29, 2006
I've recently run into a very powerful Israeli, web 2.0, networking and blogging portal that you can use instead of blogger for your personal blogs.
They have some server problems - but they have a very neat toolset.
This post has links to a number of exciting and intersting online at magazines - mostly centered around photography but no only.
Check them out and enjoy:
FStop Photography magazine
MoonCruise - Photography and Music
IdeaFixa - A Brazilian art magazine and my personal favorite from the list
Gomma - An online photography magazine
I'm still waiting for blogs postings from nearly all of you as well as your course preferences for the coming semester.
The chair in the picture was submitted to the Israeli Design Exhibition that Tria arranged last year.
This is a link to Maya Ober's website. Maya should be joining us in mid October.

In his landmark book The Design of Everyday Things, Donald Norman writes:
"The human mind is exquisitely tailored to make sense of the world. Give it the slightest clue and off it goes, providing explanation, rationalization, understanding.
Well-designed objects are easy to interpret and understand -
They contain visible clues to their operation. Poorly designed objects can be difficult or frustrating to use. They provide no clues–or sometimes false clues. They trap the user and thwart the normal process of interpretation and understanding..."
Well worth takng into account when thinking about design.

I was very happy to finally meet all of you this Tuesday and I think we were all well impressed with the projects that were displayed in class. It's going to be quite an experience teaching you this coming year and I look forward to it.
Kudos to Benjamin - he is the first (and only) one to start a Blog so far and I have attached a link from the course blog to his - check it out.
I also imagine that if it was technical issues that stopped you so far that Benjamin will be more than happy to assist....
So get Blogging!!!
You are in Jerusalem now, and will be for the next few days. I faxed Sarah Lash a list of all the events happening tonight in the Jerusalem art scene - there are 2 exhibition openenings with free performances (and maybe some food and booze as well if you are lucky...)

They also link to a nice radio station.
That's it for now.
PS Please remember to e-mail your course preferences to me ASAP.
On Tuesday 12.9.06 there will be an exhibition opening at the Mediatek in Holon at 20:00.

Course Syllabus: Foundations Of Design
Monday 9:00-13:00, Thursday 14:00-18:00
for a total of 8 weekly credit hours
Mike Darnell, Anat Litan and all of you people.
- Students will learn the foundations of the visual language of Design and gain a common basis for dialog.
- Students will learn and experience first-hand the following fundamental principals of Design: 2D and 3D Composition, Color, Texture, Pattern, Object, Space, Abstraction.
- Students will experience first-hand the Design process as a creative and intellectual effort based on cultural and associative factors related to Place, and Time – Zeitgeist.
- Students will learn Designers' work processes and practices and begin to develop and interpret them to suit their personal style.
- Students will be introduced to the Israeli art and design scene.
- Presentations of Black and White 2D and 3D compositions made of predefined materials leading to discussions regarding proportion, weight, shape, point, line, plane, format, and the relationships between all the above.
- Presentations of 2D and 3D Color compositions made of predefined materials and ready made items leading to discussions regarding expression, emotion, feeling, function, association, cultural icons and their relationship with the points discussed above in paragraph 1.
- Presentations of evolved 2D and 3D compositions involving all the points discussed above and introducing new terms such as: shell, volume, space, etc.
Course Instructional Methods
The course is composed of studio lessons, presentations, lectures and field trips
- Studio lessons - Involve personal instruction given to students regarding the topical exercise currently being discussed in the class. Instruction will be given on a one-on-one basis or small groups while the class is engaged in work on the task at hand.
- Presentations - Involve constructive class discussions of the merits and weak points of assignments completed during studio lessons or at home.
- Lectures - Two types of lectures will be given during the course:
Instructors' lectures will usually be given as an introduction to a new fundamental principle of design. Students lectures will be given at the beginning of most classes and will introduce an Israeli or international artist or designer.
- Field Trips - Two field trips are planned for the semester to Galleries and Museums displaying Israeli Art and Design.
- Blog – You are all required to run a Blog at www.blogger.com in English/Hebrew discussing your experiences in class and displaying your projects and sketches. This Blog is a vital requirement for the course as it will allow you to communicate with us, yourselves and your friends and family abroad.
- Attendance – Attendance is required at all lessons as each one of you is responsible not only for your own development but also for the development of your classmates. If you wish to miss out on a class for whatever reason you are required to notify us by phone/mail at the earliest possible time. Students missing out on a lesson without permission will have a demerit counted against themselves for grading purposes.
- Lateness – Students arriving over five minutes late to the lesson will not be allowed to enter the class until the next break. Students accumulating three instances of lateness will have a demerit counted against themselves for grading purposes.
- Participation – You are strongly encouraged to participate in class debates and voice your opinions. We will not judge you based on your opinions no matter how extreme they may seem to you.
Good designers should have strong opinions about nearly everything : - )
- Missed Assignments – If you feel that you will not be able to complete an assignment on time you are required to notify us by phone/mail at the earliest possible time. Students missing out on an assignment without notifying us in advance will have a demerit counted against themselves for grading purposes.
- Grading – Grades will be given at the end of semester and will be based on your performance and participation during the semester and on the presentation of your projects as you choose to display them at the end of the semester “Panel”.
- The Panel is an event held at the end of the semester in which you will be required to display all of the work you have done during the semester in a well designed personal display backed up by a CD containing pictures of all your work and your Blog as well.
Facilities at your disposal
HIT has a number of facilities that you will find extremely useful in completing your course assignments and projects. We strongly suggest that you familiarize yourselves with these facilities ASAP.
● Computer Labs
● Garden and Lawn (great for sitting thinking and sketching)
Follows a list of equipment you may find useful in the course.
DO NOT BUY ANY EQUIPMENT UNTIL YOU ARE SURE YOU NEED IT
● Metal ruler
● Japanese knife (Box Cutter)
● Cutting surface
We wish you a fruitful and fun semester!!!
Mike and Anat
This is the first posting for the Foundations of Design course at the HIT Blog.
Currently Anat Litan and myself are finalizing the course syllabus (in fact we have a meeting later on today...)
You should all be aware that a Blog on "Blogger" recording your experiences in this course , and linked to this Blog is a fundamental requirement for the course so I suggest you all start Blogging ASAP.
I want you all to start of by posting on your personal Blogs the portfolios you so graciously sent me.
Those of you who haven't yet sent me your Portfolio - now would be the right time to do so...
Lets get Busy
