Summary "Zadok Ben-David's inspiration derives from nature, science, magic and illusion. From 'Evolution and Theory' (1995), where he explores scientific discoveries, to the psychological installation 'Blackfield' (2007), with thousands of flowers, and the magical 'The Other Side of Midnight' (2013), which incorporates hundreds of insects, one of the characteristics of Ben-David's work is the use of multiplicity as an organizing principle. He creates an alternate amplified viewing space where the relationship between viewer (human) and artwork (nature) is both sacred and destabilizing. The new ongoing installation 'People I Saw but Never Met', features thousands of miniatures of people that he has photographed and drawn during his travels, suggesting ways in which we are both isolated yet always close together."--Amazon.
