A video piece in which junk and household goods such as a completely ordinary chair, a glass bottle, a PET bottle, a bucket and a tire cause chain reactions like dominos as they fall, rise, and burn. Gravity, centrifugal force and chemical reactions cause things to transmit energy in a variety of forms such as bubbling and smoke. It looks like the items are performing on their own without any human presence.
