35cm is a work that focuses on the effect caused by the “Lamed” passageways, which are built throughout the Wall. “Lamed” passageways were made for the use of small animals, allowing them to pass from one side of the Wall to the other. They draw their name from the Hebrew letter “Lamed” (ל) because they are designed by its shape. The footage appropriated from movement-sensitive cameras that record each occurring movement in front of the passageways. The Wall has dramatically changed the ecological system of the area: it divided the natural habitat of animals in two, thus preventing them from moving in their usual tracks, or reaching their food and water sources. Before the Wall, the predators had to wander around in the open and search for their prey. Watching the footage, we learn that certain predators realize that all they need to do is to wait near the passageway, and their “food” will appear at some point in time. The passageways themselves did not change the relationship between the animals –they are still predators and preys - but it changed the location in which they act is taking place.
