"Authentic concepts for the brain". This is the main idea behind the video art collaboration-delight. delight, created in 1997 by the video artists - Sagit Gayerman and Ifat Livni in order to share their video experience through simplicity and authentic vision.

Joining their varied skills allows them to jump freely in the video art and commercial world: from conception to scripting, directing and filming, editing to graphic design, up to animation and special computer effects. This allows them to work in a variety of techniques that exploit the media at their disposal. The collaboration works on creating live visual content for theatres and live bands as well as making delightful artistic films for business clients and family events. "In our films, whether its for commercial or artistic purposes, we aspire to keep it simple, Real, personal, gut moving with a strong human message."
