Straway

A straw made of glass, with a complicated shape that follows the routes Palestinians are forced to take

This edition of glass straws illustrates the daily struggle of Palestinian people when travelling between different locations in the West Bank or into Israel. The hand-blown glass straws visualise the various ways of going from “Jerusalem to Ramallah” or “Ramallah to Bethlehem”. The limited mobility and the delays caused by going through the checkpoints are materialised and transformed into another kind of physical experience, with the shape of the glass straws echoing the routes on the map.
