Marco Iannicelli's pointless boxes of whirring gears, shafts and chains, connected together to accomplish nothing. Much like our hero in the myth who is condemned to roll a heavy rock up a hill for eternity only to have it roll back down again, marco's boxes are condemned to repeat their endless chores in different combinations with each other. I love the look of this piece. More here including video.
note: before you spelling freaks (you know who you are, for I am one of you) start telling me that the proper spelling is Sisyphus, I know. Perhaps Marco's spelling is a play on words involving "system", or perhaps this originally came from a German website. Other theories welcome.
