Drei dekorative Glitzer-Cocktailpalmwedel in Sektgläsern flattern im Luftzug eines Ventilators. Sie wurden so in den Lichtkegel eines Diaprojektors gestellt, dass ihre Schatten und Lichtreflexe das Bild eines stürmischen Sonnenuntergangs in einen Pappkarton projizieren. Schwenkt der Ventilator weiter, hängen die Palmwedel schlapp herunter, werden sie vom Luftzug des Ventilators erfasst, flattern sie stürmisch im Wind.

Three decorative cocktail palm leaf glitter sticks in champagne glasses waving in the draft of a ventilator. They were precisely placed in the light cone of a slide projector, so that their shadows and light reflections project the image of a stormy sunset at the beach in an overturned cardboard box. When the ventilator continues to pan the glitter tinsel hang limply, are they seized by the draft of the ventilator, they furious flutter in the air.
