Orly Aviv - "Running Light"

Depicting a journey towards an unknown or imaginary destination. As the journey progresses, the viewer is exposed to a more focused and coherent reality in which the destination becomes closer and thus, clearer within the horizon line.

The bumps and un-clarity along the way, in conjunction with the passing individuals and appearing/disappearing rider,
represent the obstacles and the guiding “shadow” encountered towards reaching the target destination.

As the vision becomes more coherent, the viewer understands the journey’s significance and therefore acknowledges t
The process of adjustment to authenticity.
