Michal Rovner's layered and intentionally ambiguous work touches on the processes of historical documentation, archaeology, science, and choreography to activate states of probing. Her installations are constructed out of materials ranging from symbolic stones to a video-photography-printmaking hybrid of her own invention. Rovner places actors in her short film pieces, however, they are shrouded in black and often difficult to differentiate against the backdrop of the desert, making them emblematic and anonymous figures, as in her 2003 short film More. At the other end of the spectrum are her works Makom I and _II_ (2007-2008), four-walled installations built out of cubic stones that were once part of Israeli and Palestinian homes in which Rovner used ancient stone masonry techniques to construct the structures.
