2006; 1'13''

A wind-up chick with acupuncture needles in its sides is shown in the video. Suddenly the chick begins to shake. Many of the needles fall to the ground one after the other, till the chick slows down and stops. Then it begins to move again, faster this time. More needles are flung down, until only a very few remain in the toy. The same procedure happens again and again, only faster and more and more frantic until the chick has rid itself, finally, of all needles.
