As iZ is a tripartite lyric (Pharmacy, To Market and Library), a multi-prong investigation into the relationship between the West and East, the entangled networks among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and the dynamics among Islamic practices and pre-Islamic cultures. It is, in this sense, a meditation on the vacillation between between-ness and among-ness, the two and the many, and the desire to escape both two-ness and many-ness into the singularity of one on the way to extinction, the bone at zero.
