This print is accompanied by an artist book titled Orange Groves are Inserted Instead, both works address my discovery that one of my relative's homes in a town called Ness Ziona, called Wadi Hunayn before 1948, was stolen by the Israeli government. The house was converted into the IIBR, a top secret military facility to research and improve chemical weapons which are in turn used against Palestinian people. In aerial views of the facility, the orange groves my family planted almost a century ago are inserted to conceal the property.
