In this narrative short video the main character is charged with a Sisyphean task. As the video unfolds, the observer may become aware of the absurd nature of this character's task. The man in yellow negates his own work and produces little to no real visible progress. At the conclusion of this work, the timber retains at once the imprint of labor and the evidence of labor nullified. This video work is part of an ongoing series produced with the intent of illuminating the possibility of a transition of an obstacle to an attribute.
