A partially naked man is standing in a 1.2 m high block of wood with his hands over his eyes. Attached to a harness he is wearing is a tangle of long irregular metal bars with pink pompoms on the ends. Slowly he begins to sink at the knees and to bend over. As he does so the bars begin to separate and rise up into the air behind him , as his decending body places tension on a cable linking him, to the ceiling. The lower he goes, the more unstable he becomes, and the bars wave around as though alive. Fianlly he falls off the block, which crashes over onto the ground. The man is caught by the bars which now radiate out and upwards behind him in radiating lines, reminiscent of wings. . the man and his bars together forma very kinetic mobile
