two sides of one piece questions the handling of money in society and the influences money has on religion and politics. The video focuses on a spinning coin, it's rapid movement transforms the coin into a foreign, aesthetically pleasing object and the sound of the coin's movement across the surface allows the viewer to enter a 'dry and fragile space'. The film demonstrates how an object of opulent nature can become something appreciated simply for it's aesthetic values.
