Israel Ephemera

007 008 009 010011

I used to run a tag a group of pictures as “ephemera.” I’m in Israel now, for about a week, and think it’s time to revive that tag. While they may love it, my growing sense is that colleagues in Jewish philosophy do not  understand the myriad ways in which ephemera, space construction, and other perspectival views “matter.” I took these shots on the train ride from Ben Gurion International airport into Tel Aviv.

    foregrounding the enabling background/infrastructures is one of the keys I take from Heidegger, tho in a “merely” anthropological way that he rejected.
