A series of photographs documenting the process of consolidation of crystals on a black dress in the depths of the Dead Sea. The dress is a copy of the dress worn by Lea, the heroine of the play The Dybbuk, played by the legendary actress Hanna Rovina over four decades on the theater stage. Throughout the summer of 2014 Sigalit Landau and Yotam From followed the gradual accumulation of salt crystals on the dress which was sunk in the depths. The crystals return the black Hasidic dress to its original intent – a wedding dress.
