Sasson, a graduate of an MA in painting from the Royal College of Art, London and a lecturer in the art department of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, dedicates his craft to the deconstruction of visual images, often landscapes. He breaks down the forests, lakes, and caves to their digital pixel equivalent. In this way, he confines the wild of nature to the rules of digital photography. By sometimes adding the human element, he raises questions of human nature’s role in nature as a whole. Thus, Sasson’s figures explore issues of alienation versus connectivity.
