The propeller forms rotate counterclockwise very slowly, 3 turns per minute. It is deliberate motion and has floating impression. The elaborate model train that the doll's having gotten on the inside runs toward the clockwise, reverse of propellers rotation. The toy-train has an interval between carriage and locomotive per rotation. There is a fascinating motion in this kinetic sculpture. This work is suspended and it does neither float, nor touching on the ground. And it always keeps rotating. National identity is like this wandering image. This work represents the model of modern society behind the pleasing appearance like a toy.
