Flow, MFA, Haifa University, 2014 (Sound Installation, 8:42 min.)

I stumbled upon the term “Flow” as was explained by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi in a TED talk. According to Csikszentmihalyi, flow is a completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate experience in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing. In flow, the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand. Flow is happiness, joy.
Unlucky as I am, I find the creative process as endless combinations of “flows” and blows… That took me back to the sound of an auto wash machine with its precision and perfectly ordered tasks and actions, and the ultimate result. I felt like breaking it. It had to become something more familiar to my work process. I have these moments of flow, but I also have all the others.
