Thanks to some creative type, hamster wheels are much less of a futile exercise of frantically getting nowhere and more of a beautiful method of expression.

While a hamster runs on a simple wheel, a second, larger wheel beside it spins and sketches an image of a hamster running on a wheel. It preserves in pencil the very moment that created it.

It’s extremely productive for an activity that used to be really limited. Now how are we supposed to poetically say that we are wasting our time and energy? Thanks, art.
