An eight bladed windmill was mounted on a tripod. Each of the eight blades were covered in melanex (mirror fabric). The film was shot on a windy day in the park. The camera looks through the blades of the windmill recording either what is behind or infront of the windmill blades. A rhythm determined by the speed and direction of the wind.
