I AM IN A STRANGE LOOP TODAY

I made a parallel with the Zeno’s paradox of Achilles and the Tortoise and some scenes from the movie Forrest Gump, which I reworked altering the speed. I thus created different constant speeds which remain discontinuous despite the ability of the observer to fast forward the movie using the bar located at the bottom of the screen. In the final scene I invite to restart the Forrest’s run, and I recreate a loop like that of the Tortoise and Achilles chasing but never attaining each other.
