The uniqueness of a snowflake is astounding, yet its individuality can only be appreciated when it is pulled from a snow storm. And then moments later it melts away. There is no sacrifice, no power in its singularity. Rather, its identity is in the mix. Like flakes our identities can be lost among the masses, and with it our sense of responsibility. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec poignantly writes, “no snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.” Snow Glow is a challenge to the aphorism for viewers to stand out and take charge of their destinies, to own their actions and to glow before they melt.
