"Jessy", is a permanent light installation at the Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon, which commissioned the piece as a part of "Murals", a group exhibition on the subject of public artworks on walls curated by Udi Edelman.
The Israeli Center for Digital Art operates in the Jessy Cohen neighborhood of Holon, built in the early 1950s with funds donated by American-Jewish philanthropists Max and Jessica Cohen. Their vision was to provide public housing solutions for new immigrants who arrived in Israel from Eastern Europe and the Arab states. Locally called simply "Jessy", the neighborhood was known for its high crime rate in the ’80s and ’90s. The light sign "Jessy" (written in Hebrew letters) references the local community, suggesting it a bright new future.
