Steady Cadence takes place on the sports track in a modestly sized stadium. A person is running laps at a slow and steady pace. The monotony of his movements is repeated across the decaying constellation of urban buildings surrounding the stadium, emphasizing the impression that this situation will continue indefinitely. After a few laps, during which time passes very slowly for the viewer, the perspective changes. We begin to see through the eyes of the runner and perceive the same tension and fatigue that he is experiencing. Physical exertion thus turns into emotional pressure, reframing our relationship with time based on subjective experience.
