Artist Statement:

    Âphâr is an Hebrew word that means “dust”. This video is inspired on two passages of the Old Testament: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void. (Genesis 1). Jacob had a dream: He saw a stairway erected on the earth with its top reaching to the heavens. The angels of God were going up and coming down it and the Lord stood at its top. […] He said: Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth. (Genesis 28).
