Collecting the Shekels

The Mishkan: 

Collecting the Shekels

animation video, 3 minutes


Focussing on Exodus 38: 24-29, I have undertaken a little research and am fascinated by the accumulation of the gold (87,730 shekels worth), silver (301,775 shekels worth) and brass (212,400 shekels worth) for the Mishkan, and by the census of males aged 20 + (603,550 men), as determined annually by collection of a beka or half-shekel per head.


I have created an animation video-art work, showing these huge sums of shekels and half shekels being collected and accumulating.
