A video of a flat iron on a revolving potters wheel. The iron is lit by two stage lights, one red and one green as customary stereoscopic colours. The camera angle gets wider as the video progresses, slowly revealing the flat iron.
The accompanying soundtrack is built from recordings of Grammarly adverts, cut up so that the concision is lost and the text consists in a long, confused drivel –emphasising, and yet weirdly attuned, to the incongruity of a flattening implement on a pottery making device.
