Snow Storm 

(2002)

Two camera shoot, one closeup on hair being vigorously scratched by hands, other aimed at crotch and legs which is receiving the fallen dandruff. The whole lower body shakes in unison with the scratching hands. A lapel mic is attached to one of the hands and feeds the sounds to the second camera. The mic wire dances in front of the snow and the shaking pelvis.

Duration: 6:13
