In this episode of The Drexel InterView, host Paula Marantz Cohen interviews Israeli filmmaker and television director Eytan Fox. Fox is the director of such well-known films as Yossi and Jagger, Walk on Water, The Bubble, and the recent comic feature Cupcakes. He also is director of a popular TV series known to United States viewers as Mary Lou. Fox discusses his breadth of work in film and television, which deals with themes of homosexuality, Israeli-Palestinian relationships, the lingering effects of the Holocaust on Jews today, and life in the Israeli military. He talks about the values that his characters share-despite differences in culture or sexuality-and the impact his films have had in creating greater tolerance within the Israeli military. Fox explains the portrayal in his films of the dominant Israeli "man," a figure with whom he wrestles in his culture and himself. Finally, he considers how his work reflects a diverse taste in music. Recorded at the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery at Drexel University's Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, this episode features stimulating conversation-paired with a clip from Walk on Water-in a striking gallery space. Join Paula Marantz Cohen, Drexel University Distinguished Professor of English and Program Host, as she talks with Eytan Fox in this episode of The Drexel InterView.

Many artists spend their lives working to understand the nature, structure, or essence of a thing. In Episode 9, Wyland's depiction of a fluking whale tail almost appears to be a separate object in and of itself. Wyland uses negative space -- the space around and between the subject -- to enhance this effect. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, and not the subject itself, is used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image. Often, in a two-tone, black-and-white image, a subject is normally depicted in black and the space around it is left blank (white), thereby forming a silhouette of the subject. However, artists apply a multitude of techniques to achieve their intended effect. In this painting, Wyland applies his interest in form and negative space to give the viewer a unique perspective on this iconic image of the sea.
