Using Israeli army surveillance footage, Netta Laufer examines the wildlife habitat along the 25-foot wall that separates Israeli and Palestinian territories. As Derrida noted, “[W]hat in the final analysis distinguishes [animals] from man, is their being naked without knowing it.” Humans, by contrast, must acknowledge the moral responsibility that their condition – and the construction of the wall – implies.
