Tal's first solo exhibition took place at the Tenderpixel Gallery in London. Family Tree is a seven channel video installation in which a display of family photographs is transformed into a digital wall of pulsating rhythms. Dealing with personal recollections and the perception of memory re-learnt, a microcosm of relationships is formed between the abstract and the real, landscapes and body-parts, interiors and exteriors, colours and shapes. Combining synchronised monitors and projectors, Tal creates a double-layer of image perception: one coming from 'within' the screens (monitors) and one overlaid on top (projectors). Exploring and widening the possibilities of combining these forms of technology, the show elevates them to a new, unique and highly kinetic level of co-existence.
