To Measure is to Know by Roland Quelven 10-5

The thing that strikes me the most about this piece is the  music. There something deeply unsettling about it to me. I was uncomfortable watching this initially. It looks like something out the 1920s with its black and white grainy look.  The bearded man is sitting at a table eating food and talking to the camera. The footage has been noticeably sped up. I also noticed this white swirl spanning left to right just under the man’s beard. And there is what appears to be a light in the shape of a capital d next to him at one point.  There also appears to be a thermometer  The needle is stuck at one place going slightly back and forth by 10.
