  • 1): on YouTube: the way things go, 7.25 min. This version is 4x faster than the Original and is set to the tune of the William Tell Overture;
  • 2): Same video in normal time and with the real material noises, on vimeo: Der Lauf der Dinge (1987), 29,45 min. The film is nearly 29 minutes, 45 seconds long, but some of that is waiting for something to burn, or slowly slide down a ramp.  

Find on en.Wikipedia The Way Things Go (in german Der Lauf der Dinge): (it) is a 1987 art film by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss. It documents a long causal chain assembled of everyday objects, resembling a Rube Goldberg machine. The machine is in a warehouse, about 100 feet long, and incorporates materials such as tires, trash bags, ladders, soap, oil drums, and gasoline. Fire and pyrotechnics are used as chemical triggers.
