My project began as a multi-faceted investigation into the sense of touch: lack of feeling, the relationship between the body and memory; between land and it's "spiritual" history, superstitions, old wives' tales, sacred stones and talismans as once deeply woven within Palestinian identity. 'I Feel Nothing' is a video-poem inspired from these ideas, and from Palestinian and European versions of the fairytale The Handless Maiden as well as from Titian's Noli Mi Tangere combined with extended research on Palestinian sites once believed to have magical or supernatural powers. Metaphorical throughout, a relationship is recounted, though remains ambiguous if it is between a man and a woman, life and death, the past and the present, or an individual and a homeland.
