An extended table surface connected interior to exterior in an effort to spark cross-community dialogue and spontaneous interaction across religious, cultural, and generational lines. Within the gallery, the HOT/COLD table becomes an intimate object referencing shared meals and inviting touch. As the work extended beyond the gallery it reinforced the theme of play and public space created by the main street’s closure for the festival. The heat sensitive ink covered the surface of the interior table; when touched, the ink turned clear and revealed open-ended phrases in Hebrew or Arabic, requiring translation and sparking discussion.
