Safe (Prutza) is a sound sculpture that references the cube and Cartesian grid. Symbolically, it activates a tension between physical control and the experience of vastness.

In Hebrew, the title of the work is “prutza”- which refers to the condition of the safe as broken into or violated. It is also another word for female prostitute.
