The sculpture 'Rumors' is an acoustic sculpture made of concrete, consisting of a large parabolic dish with steps and a bench in front of it. The sculpture is positioned along Tel-Aviv beach promenade, facing towards the sea.

This type of structure creates an acoustic phenomenon, focusing all sound waves coming from a specific direction towards a single point, resulting in an amplification of sounds.
Despite the distance from the sea, sitting on the bench immerses the visitor in a wash of sea sounds, experienced differently from the way we typically perceive our surroundings.

The sculpture provides a moment when our bodies are enveloped by the sounds of the sea, and our gaze sinks into the infinite expanse before us, allowing us to be not just in front of the world but within it, together with the world.
