This micro piece tries to capture the experience of encountering an imaginary being called a Machine Elve. It’s an amazing and beautiful creature. It has hundreds, if not thousands, of tiny wings all fluttering at different speeds. It fades into view for a brief moment in all its glory, whereafter it graciously exits, leaving the spectator in awe and wonder.
