The signs on the wall have names of different glaciers on them. Threads, attached to to the signs, lead to a glacier shaped, knitted object on the floor. From this object a thread leads to a person sitting further away.
For the duration of the performance this person knits a scarf of the thread that is simultaneously unwinding from its origin point.
The performance lasted 2 days.
