Hannukkah Menorah and Eye Lash Wand by Omer Polak, Designer

The Hanukkah Menorah or Chanukiah (Hebrew) is a nine-branched candelabrum lit during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah. The menorah, usually, built from a nine permanent bodies filled with oil and wicks that are replaced all through the holiday.

This Menorah is made out of one body that contains the oil for all the holidays. The menora made out of two stainless steel sheets that welded to each other and then inflated by air pressure. By this process (FIDU Technology) every object gets a unique shape.

FoMo is a 3D printed flower, (by Stratasys), combined with more than 200 real eyelashes. Each eyelash contains a secret wish and a privet story.

What if we could read the wishes through the eyelashes ? What if we could make it true by connecting people to each other ? Do we all have the same basic wishes or is it very unique and private? How does the digital world affects the old tradition of superstitions and why do we still need it ? This project deal with questions about our social behavior and beliefs. superstition, and old customs changing through the years and being affected by the high technology and the possibilities it brings to our life.
