“We often claim, and yet our claims are mostly forged. We see ourselves, mirrored, in the faces of our enemy. And if you see yourself, in the eyes of your enemy, Does that make the enemy, an enemy? Or does your enemy become a mirrored version of yourself?” Interweaving Narratives is a publication that aims to reflect the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through creating a visual comparison. The book showcases the conversation between the two sides through the different mediums used to express each’s belief system. It narrates the story from the two perspectives. The project also shows the many sides of the conflict. The struggle is not only about land, but also other aspects such as heritage, symbols, food and clothes that we are unaware of because media is only focused on one aspect. The comparison created aims to give the viewer an unbiased objective view of the situation so that they are able to formulate their own opinion and have a deeper understanding of all the aspects of the ongoing conflict.
