As long as there is one person left who ima­gi­nes a better world, life has a chance. There is more than one person ! There are many, all wai­ting for their ideas and dreams to be weaved toge­ther by cosmic light. The seeds are all out there loo­king for the right ground to flou­rish. And they can with the blink of an eye.

In my jour­neys on the roads of Palestine, I took images of Palestinian Embroidery stit­ched by old hands. Everland cele­bra­tes all the beauty that comes out of Palestine or every other culture. To be born in Jerusalem or anyw­here else, always means you are beco­ming a citi­zen of planet Earth. We are all from eve­ryw­here and now­here. Poetically, we are all from elsew­here ! And that now­here is the ever­land we are all sear­ching for. Getting there is an extra­or­di­nary jour­ney of end­less dis­co­very.

Every time ever­land will be on dis­play, the squa­res will be put in a dif­fe­rent cons­tel­la­tion, inclu­ding their orien­ta­tion to any side. This way, ever­land will always have end­less pos­si­bi­li­ties, crea­ting a new visual, fore­ver chan­ging. And now how we put the earth-pieces toge­ther, I leave it to our col­lec­tive ima­gi­na­tion.
