The artist designed and constructed a 150cm-diameter water wheel, with one face divided into various patterned circles of varying shapes and colours. It was then fixed in place in a stream; we observe the wheel in rest, motion and rest again from a single vantage point, as it is illuminated by strobe lights synchronised with 35mm cameras. Clockwise and anti-clockwise movements disorientingly, magically interweave.
