Implementing Impact Final Presentation


Published on

In this presentation I'm diving into the conflicted reality of the Israeli- Palestinian occupation. This is where very basic human rights are violated every single day.

Since the conflict is enormous and can’t be solved all at once- it’s almost like solving world hunger, I decided to address and intervene with what I’m troubled the most- the hate speech and violent language used by many Israeli teens to describe the conflict.

My challenge is attempting to cultivate respect and change the dialogue between Israelis about the ongoing Israeli- Palestinian conflict.

I decided to gamify the past and present of the conflict in order to effect the future. I am working on designing a location-based game around cities in Israel to simulate life under the occupation in Palestinian cities only a few kilometers away.

  • This presentation was first put together two weeks before Operation Protective Edge begun, for a seminar I attend at SVA. The numbers of dead Palestinians has rapidly increased since than. It was edited once, today.
