The titles also cut to the core of her experience as a young soldier in the Israeli military. While working in the mapping department of the Israeli army, Schindler was asked to map a series of houses that were to be strategically removed--Palestinian homes that were to be bombed. When she refused to complete the exercise, she was jailed for three weeks and then excommunicated from the army for refusing to follow orders.
Schindler injects this experience into her installation, making her sirens a wake-up call in yet other ways. Yes, they tell us to rise up from our fat, consumerist, happily war-mongering and pious slumber. They also tell us to swerve free from the bleary-eyed herd, to resist that which seems so easy to follow.
