“Snow doesn’t even get born until it’s underneath the life-line of zero. Tania Kitchell lives there. She goes through the O and waits underneath until the snow comes down and falls on her and then she rolls around in it. Tania Kitchell is not made of snow in this photograph but she looks like storm. Which is coming. That is the apprehension of Tania Kitchell, in her element. So Tania Kitchell, to help us acclimatize, will bring the snow indoors…”
