The video Turning Man presents a static shot of a silhouette of a character who is constantly turning around. Despite being in motion, the figure seems frozen, almost automated. The little man turns, turns and turns again, in an abstract setting that turns out to be a vinyl record on a turntable in a domestic interior. The beat of the music is reflected and embodied by the continual rotation of the character.
