A Shell

At the heart of Maya Tiberman & Shai Hershkowitz’s work, A Shell, there is a boy who transforms reality with the help of his imagination and inner world. A shell he has found on the beach functions as a magic tool. Using it enables him to change realtiy and materialize the figments of his imagination. It works like a cinematic machine that alters spatial proportions, producers transformations and creates a new reality. The boy uses his magical wand, the shell, the way it was used by the pioneers of early cinema and especially Melies, who was a magician by trade. The interest of these filmmakers did not lie so much in the narrative, but rather in the cinematic image and the pure visual element of a cinema that was meant to create sensation and visual shock. Film historian and theorist Tom Gunning has labeled their films the “cinema of attractions.”
