The work depicts the cycle of life on earth through animation on a rotating disk. The sun’s energy circulates through life and feeds into life. However, it is disrupted by excessive development by the human, temporarily stopping the cycle. The work skillfully leverages the mechanism of an early animation device called the phenakistoscope (Fantascope) to express the theme.
