Filmed through a microscope, this piece superimposes footage from Anna May Wong’s performance in the silent film “Piccadilly” (1929) unto a magnified strand of my hair.

The film sampled is a scene from "Piccadilly" (1929). Anna May Wong plays a dishwasher in the London theater. The theater director, played by Charles Laughton, discovers her dancing in the scullery, fires her, and then later brings her to the stage.
