I’m not sure how Batsheva (above left) and Adam and Eve (above right) would feel about their having been reimagined within a 21st century digital Jerusalem – but Israeli artist and activist Mike Darnell certainly makes you wonder. His exhibition of these and other Biblical portraits are part of his “Digital Zion” exhibition that opens tonight at the Jerusalem Open House and is on view at the Yellow Submarine through March 12th.
