The title Fences refers to the 'fence phenomenon', which was first observed in 1821 by the Scottish publisher John Murray. The spokes of a wheel which are viewed in motion through a series of vertical bars assume the optical illusion of a curvature of the spokes. This phenomenon inspired the filmmaker for this colourful hand-made abstract animation film with stripes, bars and circles in a rather jerky, flickering style.
