“Gray Matter” is a project focusing on a pseudo archaeological mapping of the abandoned buildings surrounding my home town Ness Ziona, Israel. Renowned for preserving its heritage sites, the town has neglected these buildings and their purpose has been forgotten.The buildings photographed in the project varies from an old boxing house to a forgotten templar settlement and what might be the grave site of an arab sheikh that was legend to rule the valley of Ness Ziona in the 16th century.  As an alternative process to the institution’s restoration, the videos and stills  in the project were made by using a single light source that moves around the sites revealing a part of them at a time and eventually creating a reconstructed image revealing the full building.
