These two women were walking very purposely down the street. I placed them in front of a barricaded dead end alley; the only place I saw in the marketplace that did not have the protective fence overhead. The trash thrown down from the settler's high rise is piled up 3-4 feet tall in this area. Amidst the trash and barbed wire I created a symbolic protective "roof line" with words of text from a 2009 report on Israel's human rights violations against Palestinian women. More of the text provides a foundation for their feet but some of it has crumbled to pieces, indicating the fractured nature of the protection human rights watch groups can provide.
