Sad Heart with Propeller and Memories
The circuit that supplies the propeller's motor is completed through several
small brass rods which hang down to contact a current wire. When the electricity is
supplied by the controlling logic of the red printed circuit boards,
the spinning propeller pulls the rods away from their contact. This shuts
off the motor which allows the rods to make contact once again. The result
is an action that many observers find similar to a fly struggling to free
itself from a spiders web.

The occasionally slowly rotating spoked wheel is festooned with loosely
attached beads. As it turns the beads slide and shift. Their rattle and
click is slightly amplified by the stretched black paper panels which span
some sections of the wheel.
