Shot at the National Physical Laboratory in London, the lm portrays the process of calibration of the kilogram prototype with the so called “Avogadro sphere”. What is acknowledged as the roundest object ever created, is the key element that will enable a new mathematical definition of the kilogram. Thus, the work examines such paradox: a new, non-object-based definition of the kilogram can happen only through a purposely built human artefact.
