Description:  A site specific animation and sound installation. Upon entrance, the viewer found herself in the entry of the gallery, she heard a wailing sound, she squeezed past a column placed in the center of the doorway, she couldn't help becoming part of the artwork by entering the room. Animated gelatinous spirals drip down the column and wall augmented by a simultaneously spinning soundtrack.
