This scene was one of my first approaches to moving 3D imagery. It was used as a platform for workshopping motion concepts and techniques.
The Sisyphus Machine is an impossible machine with impossible machine parts, that adapts to its own movement because it was so poorly designed. It started as a simple loop idea and (d)evolved to… this.
In time, more Useless Machines will surface… maybe they’ll keep up with the mythological theme, who knows?
