An experiment, a film, exploring the notion of an imagined ideal. A glass is picked up, and put back down again, repeatedly, until the ideal action is witnessed. This process sought to explore how a simple instruction given to a performer might differ through repetition; the result may never be exactly what was hoped for, but those results might be things that could never have been imagined. As a basis for collaboration, we considered how a simple, repeatable task, such as picking up and setting down a glass of water might be performed. Furthermore, at what point would the task be finished?
