Big Wheel is an interactive video setup. A sequence shot of around three minutes is vertically cut in two equal parts placed side by side. The film loops and the big wheel keeps on turning without any real start or end.
On the screen, the young woman seems to be chatting with herself. The spectator can act on the image by rotating wheels. By modulating the speed of each sequence (accelerating, slowing down), the spectator is able to synchronize the whole film with a succession of unseen parallels.
