His latest work, "A Bit of Dirt," features an operatic video installation based on avant-garde Polish writer Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz's Isatiability. Moskowitz's employment of projection suggests a Lacanian, pre-mirror stage of identity, where there exists a fluidity of boundaries and "You" cannot easily be distinguished from "I." More generally, A Bit of Dirt implicates all of us, who, like Moskowitz's characters, sit comfortably on our evening couches and critique the current state of affairs without engaging in concrete action.
