The film documents the deconstruction of the Ferris Wheel at Augustusplatz, Leipzig in December 2017. It focuses on a worker who dismantles the metal con- struction piece by piece. He climbs through the wheel and does the same hand movements for each of the 26 segments. The whole process takes seven hours and is done at night. Normally we don’t see this process and we perceive the wheel as a whole. We overlook the single parts of which it consists and the hard physical work that is necessary to build it. The construction and deconstruc- tion is happening “behind the scenes” of the fairground. Even though the Ferris Wheel is a huge construction, it is ephemeral and can be re-build at various grounds. Instead of using realistic background sounds, the original recordings were arranged to create a rhythmical score. The worker seams to be floating in the space between the white metal poles while performing a choreography.
