“Anu" (”Us"), seeks to examine, separate and categorize, a collection of materials from which a personal identity made from. A story of an identity, which was formed at a social reality in which national myths, history and private biography woven together in a tangle of influences that dictate the course of its life.

In “Us”, Noa Dar observing the impact made upon the individual, who brought up in a society that focuses on principles such as nationalism, socialism and militarism.

Dar’s action here is to disentangle the knots and to create kind of a "User Guide", dedicated for the individual who seeks freedom of action and making choices, in a society which become withdrawn, emotionally opaque and uniformly thinking.
