A pulsing, kaleidoscope of images set to an energetic soundtrack. A young women swings in a garden; a woman's face smiles. The rest is spinning cylinders, pistons, gears and turbines, kitchen objects in concentric circles or rows - pots, pan lids, and funnels, cars passing overhead, a spinning carnival ride. Over and over, a heavy-set woman climbs stairs carrying a large bag on her shoulder. An Art Deco cartoon figure appears, dancing. This is a world in motion, dominated by mechanical and repetitive images, with a few moments of solitude in a garden

"I kind of hate caleidoscopic imagery even though it fits with the theme of mechanics and constructs visible here, ergo me not entirely falling head-over-heels in love with this wonderful short. The thing about short films is that they're a package: A title, images, sound. And that title is very relevant in short films. It sets all manner of expectations and due to the length of the film in question, those expectations will probably shadow you throughout your entire viewing experience. As such, "
