From above, the stationary camera films a miniature tape recorder lying in the grass; then a hand appears and turns it on. When the green and red spools begin to turn, a rhythmical noise is heard. The undefinable clattering recalls Morse code, drumbeats or dance steps. After a few minutes, the machine begins to wobble and lifts off. Affixed to a white weather balloon (with a green parachute), it rapidly gains altitude, the sound grows softer and the balloon shrinks to a white dot in the sky which is barely detectable in the long-range shot. When the tap-dance noise fades out after a few minutes, the camera pans downwards and we once again have a view of the grass. The enigmatic scene is an image of gravity overcome, as if the steps of a disembodied tap dancer were being carried off into the air like prey.
