The Complaint\complaining container: Down Town Haifa 2014, In collaboration with artist Hamody Gannam More

A unique project which presents in an interactive way the complaints of the public living in Downtown Haifa.
The complaints were gathered through interviews with local people who work and live in five neighbourhoods of downtown Haifa: Halisa, Wadi El Nesnas, Yaffo Street, The Port area, Al- Ateeka, Kibbutz Galouyot.
The custom made container which communicate out the complaints is made of debris materials of ship containers which were used in the Port of Haifa. Within the container one can find an interactive map of Downtown Haifa.
The container was placed in public spaces and attracted people to interact and listen to the complaining citizens, as well as to give them the opportunity to add and record their own personal complaint.
The project could not come to life without the brave support of Saadi Saadi, Tom Sofer and Lola Ben-Alon
Curator: Yeala Hazut & Rula Khouru
