I don't think it's that bad, but I admit that my local point of reference is pretty low.
I did notice on the time lapse video that the moving parts seemed to slow waaaaayyyy down as they passed through each other. That made me wonder if both videos were justaposing soundtracks so that we wouldn't have to hear the screams of scraping metal as the two figures moved through each other. Shudder.
The horizontal stripes of metal reminded me a bit of this
kinetic sculpture. (The video is silent. Again, I'm not sure I want to hear the friction of the moving parts.)
Thanks for sharing this, Sharon.
