made in collaboration with Alan Schacher
20 min video loop, number and dimensions of screens variable, silent, 2007

With references to classical western sculpture, a naked male body manipulates a grey blanket. The blanket is the diasporic body's only shelter and comfort, the simplest form of clothing, its protection and its shroud.
