A local canine celebrity personality had been booked and the exercise equipment loaded into a car. The video, "Treading", follows the dog as he trots in an endless loop in various striking cityscapes of the ancient Muslim city, while people pass by with disinterest. It is no coincidence that the piece first exhibited in Dubai's International Financial Centre, where many business executives who create value 16 hours per day or more, might find themselves taking an unanticipated moment of personal reflection as they observe with the dog on his never-ending journey towards an indeterminate infinity.
