Hands threading yarn in a needle, embroidering cloth. A sewing machine on the soundtrack. The manual labor adapts to the speed of the mechanical needle, rendering the handwork invisible, not only in the anamorphic, distorted frame, but also in the rush of speed. Until the thread becomes entangled, the machine blocked, and the work comes to a standstill. A white image remains: blank, unfathomable.
