A two-channel video work and piano composition.

Based on the principle of weaving, whereby two sets of yarns are interlinked at a right angle. Each yarn passes alternately over and under another, perpendicular yarn. Repetition of this kind of intersection (which is, in fact, more like a meeting), causes the yarns to form a surface altogether, which can potentially be stronger than glue. In the video the passing of yarns over and under each other is reflected by the moment when the two persons meet: only one of them, she who passes before the other, is briefly visible. In a similar fashion, the composition’s two melodies sometimes briefly intersect.
