Dim red portrait of creator (Peter Nicholson) from waist up, holding a glass of water at eye level in his left hand; he pours the water into a glass below, the stream of water captured in motion; a magnifying lens that sits in a frame with clamps sits in the foreground; depending on the viewer's angle, the creator's face and the water are magnified through the lens.
