2/ "The Bubble" was made as part of Illustration Week 2020 within the exhibition "Tel Aviv Jaffa 2120." During the cCorona pandemic, the exhibition sought to offer an extreme Histadrut to the future of the local and well-known unions, to imagine and present ideas for what the city of Tel Aviv might look like in a hundred years. The illustration depicts the student bubble as a floating island off the beach, on top of a massive swarm of jellyfish.
