Infected Landscape free pdf To describe the complexity of this ever-changing and multi-layered terrain, Kremer creates aesthetic, orderly and beautiful compositions that parallel the defense mechanisms developed to protect Israelis from the painful reality of the current political situation. Rather than confronting the Israeli occupation in the way that it has been absorbed by the world's media, Kremer adopts a more subtle approach. For him, the media's aggressive representation of reality numbs people's sensibilities making them callous to the suffering of others.Instead of shock, Kremer seeks to challenge the viewer, using the landscape as a focus to understand the overwhelming impact of the situation at the deepest of levels. Four decades ago the historian and philosopher, Yeshayahu Leibovich, forewarned that the Israeli occupation was a cancerous disease in the heart of the nation. As Kremer himself says, 'my goal is to reveal how every piece of land has become infected with loaded sediments of the ongoing conflict'.
