Hoepelmachine

A red hoop rolls back and forth over a track paved with sidewalk tiles. The hoop is being set in motion until it rotates at high speed. After the machine has launched the hoop, it returns without outside help to its base where it will be brought up to speed again. The physical trick performed by the hoop has been directed with great precision. The principle revolves around balancing and needs and exact amount of power and speed.
The hoop will return into eternity, or until the machine breaks down due to exhaustion.
