The work starts with a wintry landscape projected in a colder than normal room, making viewers almost feel the snow on their skin. Appearing in front of the projection, Zits, carrying mounds of white fabric, begins to use the material and his body to reinterpret and play along with what appears on the screen. However, there are moments when gravity takes hold, fabric shifts and again we are forced to contend with the fact that we are not in nature, that we are watching a highly fabricated version of a human interaction with the landscape. -excerpt from text by Denise Markonish.
