STORY

Living under occupation is an attack on people’s mental strength. Being confronted with the consequences of a conflict everyday produc- es tension. When talking to a Palestinian artist about the conflict, the Dutch designer Mark-Jan van Tellingen was wondering if he had ever thrown stones at Israeli forces. “Yes”, the artist replied. For him it was a release of restrained tension, a short moment of completely de-stress- ing. In this sense the stone became the object of release. Similar to a stress ball, it had the objective to release tension.
