An office copier is stuck in an endless loop of scanning and printing. The paper slides out of the machine, coiling around and winding to the rhythm of the printer’s wheels. Constantly in motion, the printed image is drawn to the scanning table, which copies the image backwards onto the paper. As the paper is pulled back into the machine, the images pile up, their clarity and sharpness dissipating. Copier presents a continuous present losing control over itself. The familiar and mundane elements of the paper’s movement, the scanner’s light, and the printer’s sound transform into a rhythmic, almost ritual movement. Due to its inability to stop, the operation of the machine increasingly overrides the image it is designed to produce and replicate, destroying the image and the paper on which it is printed.
