Bielicky interprets life as a 'perpetuum mobile' in this short but intense and fast-moving collage of images which has been edited in an apparently arbitrary and non-narrative way. Perpetuum Mobile demonstrates that the constant dynamism of nature and culture is life's basis and its expression, and can only be halted by the fatality of death.
