During the summers of 2014 and 2015, the Zoom team reviewed end-of-year shows in art
schools throughout the country and examined the works of some 700 artists. Approximately 70
artists from a wide range of schools - from Oranim College in the north to Sapir College in the
south – were selected by the Zoom team and interviewed individually. In consultation with the
teachers and directors of all these art schools, the list was finally narrowed down to 35 artists.
These 35 artists met with the Zoom team once more and received assistance in preparing
professional power point presentations to be used in the subsequent stage of the project.
