“When blood falls on snow, it freezes, and remains bright red, rather than drying and turning brown. This piece is musing on ethnic and religious conflict, particularly in the former Yugoslavia, and the way in which ancient (and to some degree invented) differences and conflicts remain fresh in the mind, and that the only way to move forward in such conflicts is perhaps to draw a line in the sand (or snow).” - Rachel McDonnell, 2021
