The TV Serias was created in the years 1984-1992 in both New York and Israel. It represents painted TV screens showing different subjects in painted TV set frames from the late 70s-mid 80s. It includes two kinds of work:

1. TV Wall: including 20 TV screens of 210 x 300 mm hung in 5 lines of four screens each and a small plate below them (see MA.2085.1), on which is written in Latin cursive with yellow letters on a white background: recondite. The order of the screens is left to right: upper line: conversation (interview), Tables of Convenant, flag, bell; second line: rainbow, flower, bull, Tower of David; third line: book, ten, flag (Japan), nude. Fourth line: perspective (man), eye (pyramid), mask, tree; Buttom line: colunm, mask, hand of god, map (Land of Israel).

2. Different screens, mostly larger than the TV Wall, created in mid 80s early 90s.
