Ben - a projected virtual entity, puts on a magic show during which he presents illusions related to the word "word" and the meanings and images that emerge from it in Hebrew.

Ben's projected body is disassembled and reassembled, while also dismantling the system of connections between the letter, the word,the image, the illusion, the voice, the time, the identity, and the Jewish circumcision ceremony.
